A Day at the Races

Hailed to be the third funniest Marx Brothers flick falling short of "A Night at the Opera" and "Duck Soup." A failing sanitarium is about to go bankrupt and its richest patient recommends Dr. Hackenbush (Groucho) to put things right (he's really a veterinarian) or she'll leave. The owner also bought a racing horse to help out with the financial situation that's just gotta win! An extremely funny comedy that certainly exceeds today's standard; a highlight of all Marx Brother's flicks.
