August 19th, 2012: A Night at the Opera (1935)

Cast and Crew:  Margaret Dumont

What It’s About:  The Marx Brothers help two crazy opera singing kids stay together as stars of a new production.

Why Watch it Today?: Groucho Marx died today in 1977.  Although the Marx Brothers films for MGM are not held in the same regard as their earlier pictures for Paramount, A Night at the Opera is the best of their later pictures, with many classic sequences such as the “State Room” scene.
