Fun and hilariously amusing comedy in which the Marx Brothers attempting to win a major steeplechase race for getting money to save a sanitorium from ruin
Relentlessly comical and outrageous musical comedy that still works very well . The first to follow ¨A night at the Opera¨, their biggest success and use a variation on its formula . Amusing and entertaining Marx Brothers picture , it has a lot of funny material and unfortunately intrusive songs . Groucho’s wisecracks and the incomparable Chico and Harpo carry the movie . It deals with a sly veterinary named Dr. Hugo Hackenbush (Groucho Marx) who is illegally employed as the sanitarium director and other wacky friends , as Tony (Chico) , a helper at the sanitarium and Stuffy (Harpo) , a jockey previously employed by the nasty Morgan (Douglass Dumbrille) . All of them betting a horse race to save from the financial ruin . Along with Gil (Allan Jones as a singer) who has invested all his money in Hi Hat , a race horse and Judy (Maureen O’Sullivan) owns the bankrupted sanitarium and she has hopes they will win enough to pay off the debts . Meantime , town villain Morgan has his sights set on taking over Judy’s sanitarium and turning it into a casino by attempting to prevent the horse from getting onto the race track . Later on , Marx Brothers anarchize the racecourse , cheating and mocking the riders , while humiliating their stuffy and snobbish enemies .

Classic Marx film with many funny sequences , this is the most sustained bit of insanity , full of crazy gags , antics and amusement , being now deemed a satiric masterpiece and one of the biggest hits . Though not as mercilessly hilarious and outrageous as the movies they played at Paramount with Zeppo , it results to be , nonetheless , an agreeable movie . The Marx Brothers were still at the peak of their fame in this MGM musical/comedy. Although it suffers from staginess and musical comedy plotting , and extremely overlong , but gives the zany threesome plenty of comic elaboration . It works very well , which , unfortunately and sadly , did not prove to be the case with most of the Marx Brothers pictures that went on . Enough gags for give several movies , but our favorite is still the horse race at hippodrome . Despite the abundant songs and silly as well as sappy love story the movie maintains itself very well . Excellent Harpo Marx , as usual , he even did many of his own stunts , he later said it was a silly thing for a 47-year-old non-stuntman to have done . Groucho said that this was his favorite among his movies . The Marx Bros (minus Zeppo) are in peak form in this vintage musical comedy with co-star the legendary Margaret Dumont , an obligatory appearance here playing a wealthy hypochondriac who might also save the sanitarium, including sparkling dialogs and dances with Groucho . Furthermore , Sig Ruman makes his second of three appearances in The Marx Brothers films. However , this is the second Marx Brothers film made without brother Zeppo Marx, it started a new trend of The Marx Brothers movies featuring a Zeppo-like supporting character who carries the love story and sings the song . This is a M.G.M production lavishly financed by Max Siegel and Irving Thalberg. The motion picture was well directed by Sam Wood . Sam Wood, freshman The Marx Brothers director in this film, was a perfectionist filming very charming scenes . Don’t miss it , one of the funniest picture ever made by Marx Brothers.

Other important films starred by Marx Brothers -many of them Broadway farce plays transfered by scenarists into vehicle for the Brothers- , they are the following ones : ¨Animal crackers¨, ¨Duck soap¨ that was a flop when first released but today considered a masterpiece , ¨Horse Feathers¨, ¨At the circus¨, ¨A night at the Opera¨,¨Day at the races¨ , ¨Room service¨ , ¨Go West¨, ¨Love Happy¨ and ¨Night in Casablanca¨, though in 1946 the Marx formula was weak and wearing thin. Any film with Groucho , Chico , Harpo and Zeppo is well worth seeing .

Review By: ma-cortes
The Last Great Marx Brothers Movie
After this one, the quality fell off…dramatically.

This one has everything but Zeppo. Groucho and Chico work together like a well oiled insane asylum. The ice cream bit still makes me laugh and I’ve seen it upwards of twenty times. The timing is incredible. The examination room bit with Harpo (“Either this man is dead or my watch has stopped”) is equally tight. There isn’t a slow moment in the film.

What is unusual in this film is the big musical number with the African-American race track employees. Instead of people in black face or grotesque caricatures, real black singers and dancers are featured. Imagine seeing the Jitterbug fifteen years before white teens were performing it. It is not the only time the Marx Brothers have featured black musicians in one of their movies (At the Circus comes to mind)…

Margaret Dumont as Mrs Upjohn is wonderful. A Marx Brothers fan, like myself, tends to fall in love with the woman after many years. Her beauty and naivety eventually charm even the most cynical Grouchophile…

See it!
