Storyline

"Madcap" and "blithe" are the key descriptors in this quick chronology of the career of the Marx Brothers. They began as concert musicians whose banter, whenever they had stage fright, took them to vaudeville then to Broadway. After being the toast of New York, they took their plays to Hollywood. Using still photographs, the off-screen narrator reminds us of several famous scenes from their hit films, salutes frequent costars Margaret Dumont and Sig Rumon, and gives the highest praise to Harpo's antics. After Zeppo retires, three brothers continue until Grocho goes off on his own. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
