The Marx Brothers Collection
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.
