Matt, thanks for the review. RAH only gave it a 3.5 image grade, but I suspect that most of us will concur with your video grade. Anywhere from 4.5-5.0. Is that Maltin audio commentary new? Edit: Oops, I forgot about the Maltin commentary on the 2004 DVD.

Singers who could actually do justice to Trovatore wouldn't be caught dead in a Marx Brothers movie making fun of it. Especially in the 30s.
