A neat documentary on why we laugh outloud with those silly Marx boys!
20 November 2001 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

THE MARX BROTHERS IN A NUTSHELL is prime viewing for a Marx Brothers fan. It does take the expected route of tracing the origins of the Marxes, from their early days in the New York/Coney Island vaudeville circuit almost a hundred years ago, onto Broadway in the 1920's and finally Hollywood. There are great "chapters" on each brother, including the never filmed Gummo. These insightful chapters give facts such as straight man Zeppo was considered the funniest Marx Brother (He's actually hysterical in ANIMAL CRACKERS) Chico had a gambling problem, and Harpo was a loving family man. There are great film clips, including a seldon seen 1931 short they did at Paramount where the Marxes menace a helpless talent scout. The perfect film to see after HORSEFEATHERS or DUCK SOUP.
