Apparently Zeppo was in private the funniest of the Marx Brothers, and did a great Groucho! He also (and thanks to IMDB for this) invented a wristwratch that could monitor the pulse rates of cardiac patients.
So, cute, smart, and funny? Eh, I don’t like him! 😉
He invented a cardiac monitor? That’s a *wow*! 🙂
😉 Damn you, Zeppo with yer big brainbox!
I like the Marx Brothers unlike The Three Stooges who were still being shown in a specialist cartoon cinema when I was a child.Come to think of it so was Shirley Temple and I did not like her either.Not the sort of thing for a man who did not become a rock star to have to endure.
Loved the Marx Brothers and I agree with you completely on the others!
Lydia, Lydia, my encyclo-PID-ia, Lydia the Tattooed Lady…
C’mon Edward, you could still be a rock star! Edward Sing The Songs Of Groucho Marx… 😉
Shirley Temple = Creepy! I bet Bill “Bojangles” Robinson sometimes wanted to kick her in the caboose! (or is that kaboose?!)
Weird to think that Shirley’s pictures outgrossed the likes of the sublime Duck Soup!
The Dandy has never seen a Marx Brothers’ movie.
I suspect from the tone of the above that I may be missing out… but where should I start?
The Perfumed Dandy
“Duck Soup”! That said, they’re a series of vaudeville skits and are probably best viewed at the age of ten when they are screamingly funny.
Fortunately, I still have the mind of a ten year-old 😉 Groucho transcends vaudeville at his best and Duck Soup is their smartest, screamingly funny at any age!
Genius! (the sequence and the choice 😉 )
When Zeppo left the act. The studio head reluctantly told Groucho, “Well, I guess you three will want the same money that we paid the four of you.” Groucho said, “The same money! Without him we’re worth twice as much.”
Out of curiosity, I looked up the old LA City Directories, and found his office was at 8732 Sunset Blvd, which puts it just west of the Sunset Plaza
