Product Details

"A Night in Casablanca" (1946) is the best of the later Marx comedies and a fitting finale to their screen career. This postwar escapade features the Marxes in splendid form while recapturing the rough-edged spontaneity of their early Paramount comedies. Margaret Dumont's retirement is compensated by the return of comic villain Sig Rumann (as Heinrich Stubel), who was a terrific foil in "A Night at the Opera" and "A Day at the Races." It may seem odd to place Groucho, Harpo and Chico in a post-WWII setting, but the shenanigans inside the Hotel Casablanca are a refreshing throwback to their first film, "The Cocoanuts" (1929). In many ways, the Marxes have come full circle. The final image of the brothers chasing beautiful Lisette Verea through the streets of Casablanca ends the movie on an appropriately Marxian note, which wasn't the case in most of their MGM efforts.
