During filming of ‘A Night at the Opera’ (1935)
Amateurs de films classiques, saurez-vous retrouver les prénoms des Marx Brothers? (sans tricher !)
the marx brothers (via tsutpen.blogspot.com)
This video is a great tribute. It makes me really sad that people don’t appreciate these guys now-a-days. They were one of my first loves. If I could have dinner with anyone in history, I would invite the Marx Brothers, Three Stooges (including Shemp) and Charlie Chaplin.
Yeah I wasn’t shitting you when I said I was going to dress up as Harpo Marx for Halloween (excuse the dirty mirror).
Might need to cut the wig so I can get the top hat on properly. For those who have no idea who Harpo Marx is go and Google ‘Marx Brothers Films’ and watch their films (copyright has finished so they’re up on Youtube or Veoh). Here’s some pics too.
My friend said I only like Harpo Marx best out of the Marx brothers because he’s the popular one and everyone likes him.
No. Just no.
Yes, I love him as an actor in the films, but all in all he was a kind, generous, loyal and wonderful person.
One thing that always makes me go ‘awww’ about him was when asked how many kids he’d adopt, he replied “I’d adopt as many kids as there are windows on my house. So when I go off to work in the morning, there’ll be one face at every window, waving me goodbye.”.
Another was that when WW2 broke out, he immediately joined up to fight or fly for the US… but he was rejected, possibly due to his age or height. So he decided to give shows to the troops at their camps, as a way of helping the war effort.
Of course there are other silly reasons I like him most, like these:
