[on comedy playwright George S. Kaufman] He had great integrity. You never had to watch him when he was dealing.
As a child, Harpo was apparently infatuated with music. He rejoiced when his family bought a piano. He then fell into dispair when he found out that they could only afford to let one brother have piano lessons. His brother Chico Marx
ended up with the lessons, which he did not take seriously. Harpo, of course, later mastered the harp.
Usually wore a raincoat, beat up top hat and a red wig. Rarely spoke in his roles and never in films with his brothers. He would use pantomime and often had a bike horn to communicate with. He often had a scene where he would play a harp with great skill.
