One of the Marx Brothers' most successful films, A Night at the Opera gets a fitting DVD release from Warner Bros. with this fine disc. The film itself is presented in a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio. The Dolby Digital English soundtrack is rendered in the original Mono. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by film historian Leonard Maltin that covers not only the film's production but discusses the history and working habits of the brothers. Robert Benchley's short How to Sleep, a television appearance by Groucho Marx, and the film's theatrical trailer all help make this disc highly recommended.
