A Day at the Races

1937 Rated NR 1hr 50m

In this madcap escapade, the Marx Brothers aid Judy Standish (Maureen O'Sullivan), who runs a private sanitarium that's facing foreclosure. Groucho plays (horse doctor!) Hugo Hackenbush, and the one-liners fly, providing hearty laughs all around. Harpo mimes and Chico obliterates the English language in the guise of a racing tipster with a suspicious Italian accent. Perennial foil Margaret Dumont is on hand as a rich, fussy sanitarium patient.
