I've had this book a few months now and i've vastly enjoyed it. It's the ideal guide for any Marx fan, packed with pictures and photos that are rarely seen as well as some of the best.
Inside, the entries are all good, and such entires as 'could harpo speak', and 'chaplain, charlie' are some of the most enjoyable. All in all it's a fantastic book, well worth owning.

'Its so simple a child of 5 would understand, fetch me a child of 5'.
This one sentence sums it up and any book with a chapter called 'Could Harpo speak' is worth the money alone. This is the updated and corrected edition and would be perfect for any true comedy or film fan.

I guess that this will be an easy review to write.If you are a fan of the Marx Brothers then this excellent book is an absolute must.It really does tell you all that you would want to know including facts about all of their movies,the many different actors that appeared in them and an account of each of the brothers lives.

The research that has gone into this book merits giving this the full five stars.Highly recommended as are other books in the series featuring Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy.

Everything but the kitchen sink is included in this book.... 23 Feb. 2005
By devotedmarxist - Published on Amazon.com
Actually, I think I saw the sink somewhere in the book too! ;)

It's everything you could possibly want to know about the Marxes. I like the A to Z format, it's very easy to navigate your way through the book. I use it all the time for reference. A well-researched, well-written book. Get this one.

The Best Book on The Marx Brothers I've Ever Seen 27 Jan. 2006
By John Profetto - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the most detailed book on the Marx Brothers I've ever seen.I highly recommend it.Every single movie they ever made,together and alone,is so fully detailed.Plus every actor and actress the brothers ever worked with(including the legendary Margeret Dumont of course)is also fully reviewed.

This book is a must for any Marx fan!

While we wait for the dvd's...Bob 3 Mar. 2004
By Natale Associates, Ltd - Published on Amazon.com
Wonderful book full of trivia for even the most expert Marx fanatic. Revised edition is well worth the investment for info such as the butchering of "Night at the Opera"...which is the film with the stateroom scene asked about previously.

A MARX BROTHERS MOVIE QUESTION 12 Feb. 2004
By HARDEN J. HILL - Published on Amazon.com
I have not read the book yet but I have a question about one of their movies that I hope someone can answer. I cannot remember
the movie this skit was in but it was the skit where Groucho, Harpo and Chico are sharing basically a tiny room on board a ship. First the cleaning ladies come in to clean, then the steward delivers food, then the mechanics come in to adjust a pipe valve and finally the room is packed head to toe with all
of these people and they all pop out of the cabin door and spill out onto the ships floor. It is hilarious! Please, someone, which movie is this scene from. It's making me crazy that I can't recall the movie title. HELP!!!
