Last night I shot an elephant in my pajamas...
14 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

In a few days, it will be the thirtieth anniversary of Julius Henry Marx - aka Groucho - leaving this life. So I guess that it was appropriate that I got to see "The One, the Only... Groucho" (in fact, just a few days after I saw "Animal Crackers"). It's always fascinating to learn about how these great comedians were as people. I wouldn't have thought of Groucho as a near chauvinist, but from what the documentary explains, it sounds as though he was: always hooking up with alcoholic women so that he could dominate them.

I should say that my favorite Marx brother is Harpo, but no one can deny Groucho's indelible stamp on popular culture. Who would have guessed that the son of a poor immigrant tailor would become one of the most recognizable faces in comedy? Along with the archival footage - aside from his movie roles, there are clips from "You Bet Your Life" and other appearances - interviews with Jack Lemmon, Bill Cosby, Michael Fenneman, Art Linkletter and Groucho's daughter Miriam help move the documentary along. I recommend it.
