At the Circus is a 1939 comedy directed by Edward Buzzell. The Marx Brothers star in the off-the-wall comedy about a struggling circus owner trying to save his circus from being taken over by an unscrupulous businessman. Jeff Wilsom (Kenny Baker) runs a small circus with his business partner, John Carter (James Burke). When business slows, Wilson ends up owing Carter $10,000. Wilson struggles to come up with the money, but does. However, before he can pay Carter, hired goons steal the money. Now Wilson risks loosing his share of the Circus to Carter. Two circus employees, Antonio Pirelli (Chico Marx) and Punchy (Harpo Marx), decide to save the circus. They hire a lawyer, Loophole (Groucho Marx). Together they work to find the thief, recover the money and save the circus. The film features the slapstick zaniness and wild antics that made the Marx Brothers famous. Fans of the brothers will also appreciate the several musical numbers.
