 A DAY AT THE RACES

1937 • The Marx Brothers

 

 

"Either he's dead or my watch has stopped” is just one of the witty lines from the iconic comedy brothers. And with all the zany, manic comedy, we get a few song and dances numbers -- and they’re good!  This is an entertaining funny flick, with scenes such as Groucho trying to run a sanitarium.  It’s classic Marx Brothers!

 Frankenstein

1931 • Boris Karloff

 New Moon

1940 • Jeanette MacDonald, Nelson Eddy

 

 

This charming operetta is filled with incredible music. Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy made several pictures together and by 1940 they were the superstars of the movie musical. If you look beyond the now-corny dialogue, New Moon is a treasure trove of wonderful songs performed by two of the most radiant stars of the period.  It’s a true musical treat.

MY LITTLE CHICKADEE
