Original MGM 1948 Re-Release Window Card (14x22). Signed Groucho Marx. Art by Al Hirschfeld. Very Fine Condition.

 

Original MGM 1948 Re-Release Window Card (14x22) for the Sam Wood directed Marx Brothers' comedy classic, A NIGHT AT THE OPERA (1935) starring the zany trio, Allan Jones, Kitty Carlisle, and Margaret Dumont. Considered by some critics to be the best Marx Brothers film, it certainly boasts some of the finest examples of their uncanny wit and physical comedy. The brothers get mixed up with an opera company and a "divo" and diva (Jones and Carlisle) in love. In the attempt to bring the lovebirds together - both onstage and off - the Brothers create comic mayhem along with romantic merriment. Allan Jones, the father of sixties singer Jack Jones, and Kitty Carlisle, future wife of playwright Moss Hart, also turn in memorable performances. The ending is true Marx Brothers' genius at its best when Verdi's "Il Trovatore" is wonderfully mangled for all time. This reissued re-release window card is in very fine condition and is paper-backed. Original 1935 posters for this film are rare and expensive. IF you could find a collector willing to sell one, you would pay several times over what we are charging for this poster from MGM's only re-release of the movie, in 1948. Art by Al Hirschfeld.
