Overview

The Marx Brothers revolutionized the face of comedy forever, and now contemporary audiences can enjoy some of their greatest film achievements on DVD thanks to this Warner Bros. release. Each feature is presented in its original 1.33:1 full-frame aspect ratio and accompanied by an English Dolby Digital Mono audio mix. Features include: A Night at the Opera, A Day at the Races, A Night in Casablanca, At the Circus, and Go West/The Big Store. If fans have come to expect little in terms of bonus features from DVD releases of such older films, they will no doubt be pleasantly surprised with the wealth of bonus material offered on this release. Commentary is provided by film critic Leonard Maltin on A Night at the Opera, and by The Marx Brothers Encyclopedia author Glenn Mitchel on A Day at the Races. A pair of documentaries entitled "Remarks on Marx" and "On Your Marx, Get Set, Go!" offer a detailed look at the career of the Marx Brothers. After viewing an excerpt from The Hy Gardner Show featuring Groucho Marx himself, viewers can settle in for a handful of vintage shorts, MGM and Looney Tunes cartoons, Our Gang shorts, audio features, and theatrical trailers.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
This long-awaited debut DVD box set from the Marx Brothers collects 7 of their 13 films together, essaying their six years (1935-41) at Irving Thalberg's MGM, as well as their independently produced postwar comeback film. At this stage, the Marxes were a trio onscreen -- mustachioed wisecracker Groucho, dimwitted schemer Chico, and mute clown Harpo -- following straight man Zeppo's decision to stop performing in favor of managing the group's career. Splendid transfers and nifty extras make the set a must-have for fans, but there's also plenty here for comedy lovers who know the Marx Brothers only by reputation as the grandfathers of anti-establishment screen anarchy. Leading off the set is their 1935 MGM debut, A Night at the Opera, featuring Groucho as Otis P. Driftwood, frequent foil Margaret Dumont as the wealthy dowager Mrs. Claypool, and such celebrated sequences as the crammed-stateroom scene. Graced here with a suitably enthusiastic commentary by historian Leonard Maltin and fleshed out with some clever period shorts, it's the gem of the set. A Day at the Races (1937) features Chico selling "tutsi-fruitsi" ice cream and hot tips at the race track, and Groucho as Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush, a veterinarian unwisely summoned by Dumont to help rescue Maureen O'Sullivan's sanitarium from nasty creditors. Room Service and At the Circus come next in the Marx chronology, having premiered in 1938 and 1939, respectively, and the films are paired together on a single disc here. Room Service finds the brothers for the first time working from a script not originally conceived with them in mind, with Lucille Ball and Ann Miller as costars, while At the Circus features one of Groucho's golden musical moments, his rendition of "Lydia the Tatooed Lady." Go West (1940) and The Big Store (1941) also share a single DVD here: The former is best remembered for its climax, a wild, Keaton-esque chase that finds Harpo and Chico splintering apart a speeding train to fuel its boiler; while the latter closes out the MGM years in disappointing fashion, with Harpo's musical number serving as the film's strongest moment. Five years after The Big Store, Groucho, Chico, and Harpo reunited for A Night in Casablanca, an ostensible a spoof of wartime melodramas that degenerates rapidly into Marxian anarchy, as the boys beat a Nazi war criminal to his secret stash of heisted jewels and paintings.

    FINALLY! Available as a set.

    A classic comedy trio in classic movies is worth the price. 'A Day At The Races and 'A Night At The Opera' alone is is worth the price. Throw in 5 other movies and documentaries, cartoons and outtakes is an added bonus! Who wouldn't like to behave like Groucho when talking to a pretentous pompous person? Or act without abandon like Harpo? Or be quick-witted with words as Chico? Get this set! You'll be happy to get it.

    I Also Recommend:

    The Marx Brothers are the movie comedy masters !!

    The Marx Brothers collections includes every film that Groucho,Harpo,and Chico made for MGM. The 2 great films in the lot, A Night at the Opera and A Day At the Races were produced and "shaped" by the boy genius producer, Irving Thalberg. Note: In 2009 the overt racial stereotypes of blacks in A Day At the Races is difficult to watch. However, if you fast forward thru those parts, the rest of the movie is very funny. I would not change a frame of A Night At The Opera. The rest of the movies in the collection have some very funny moments and some scenes that do not work. The Collection features remastered soundtracks and images. I highly recommend this box set. Enjoy !!
