Fascinating Retrospective on a Comedic Giant
9 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another retrospective of the Marx Brothers, with an emphasis on Groucho. It covers a lot of ground that other retrospectives do, especially Marx Brothers In A Nutshell, and The Unknown Marx Brothers.

A couple of aspects sets this apart from these, however. First, The One, The Only Groucho, takes a more adult approach to the subject of Groucho. We see his three wives, are told about their alcoholism, and how Groucho had serious family issues.

Also. there is a bit more of the "spicy", bawdy side of the comedian. Don't look for Dice Clay, here, but there are few "f" words scattered about, and the interviewee's have some ribald stories about the boys during the vaudeville years.

The program is loaded with clips not seen for a long time, including a David Frost Interview, a couple of Dick Cavett interviews, and some old TV kinescopes of his interviews and performances that I had not seen in the other shows.

I was lucky enough to re-discover this HBO produced show as I was dusting off my VHS collection.
