I have every one of his encyclopedias. Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, A-Z of Silent Film Comedy and now The Marx Brothers Encyclopedia. All for old, little boys like me.
It's all here (or most of it). I was glad to read one part in particular about why one scene of Horsefeathers is always so chopped up in every print. Closure about the frustrating condition of a classic..
These books by Mitchell are all great fun. A lot of facts and photos. That's all I'm looking for.The Marx Brothers Encyclopedia
