The Best Book on The Marx Brothers I've Ever Seen Jan 27, 2006
This is the most detailed book on the Marx Brothers I've ever seen.I highly recommend it.Every single movie they ever made,together and alone,is so fully detailed.Plus every actor and actress the brothers ever worked with(including the legendary Margeret Dumont of course)is also fully reviewed.
This book is a must for any Marx fan!
Everything but the kitchen sink is included in this book.... Feb 23, 2005
Actually, I think I saw the sink somewhere in the book too! ;)
It's everything you could possibly want to know about the Marxes. I like the A to Z format, it's very easy to navigate your way through the book. I use it all the time for reference. A well-researched, well-written book. Get this one.
While we wait for the dvd's...Bob Mar 4, 2004
Wonderful book full of trivia for even the most expert Marx fanatic. Revised edition is well worth the investment for info such as the butchering of "Night at the Opera"...which is the film with the stateroom scene asked about previously.
question answered Feb 16, 2004
The answer to your question is A Night At the Opera and is considered one of their most famous scenes.
A MARX BROTHERS MOVIE QUESTION Feb 13, 2004
I have not read the book yet but I have a question about one of their movies that I hope someone can answer. I cannot remember the movie this skit was in but it was the skit where Groucho, Harpo and Chico are sharing basically a tiny room on board a ship. First the cleaning ladies come in to clean, then the steward delivers food, then the mechanics come in to adjust a pipe valve and finally the room is packed head to toe with all of these people and they all pop out of the cabin door and spill out onto the ships floor. It is hilarious! Please, someone, which movie is this scene from. It's making me crazy that I can't recall the movie title. HELP!!!
