DAY AT THE RACES, A
"Either this man is dead or my watch has stopped." Judy Standish (Maureen O'Sullivan) runs a sanitarium that has fallen on hard times. Wealthy hypochondriac and sanitarium regular Emily Upjohn (Margaret Dumont) has the funds to save the day, but insists that Judy hire Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush (Groucho Marx). He's actually a veterinarian, but that's okay. Meanwhile, other plans to save the facility are afoot, involving a lucky horse called Hi-Hat, Chico's race tip hawking and an incessantly interrupted "seduction" scene. DIR/PROD Sam Wood; SCR Robert Pirosh, George Seaton, George Oppenheimer. U.S., 1937, b&w, 109 min. NOT RATED
