Product description


"An imposing compendium of all facts Marxian. It's a tribute to the density of the bros.' work that there's so much to be found in this volume." - Blogcritics

"Being that the Marx style of comedy is timeless, many generations to come will benefit greatly from such a detailed source of information on the team." - The Daily Rotation

"To say this volume is extensive doesn’t quite do it justice. The author touches upon everything you’d need to know about the Brothers." - Nerdy Nothings

"An incredible compendium of facts." - Flixist

"Densely packed with information about anything you could ever ask about the Brothers." - The Retroist

"Truly a vastly informative tome, this is a must for Marx fans and any lover of vintage comedy performers and their lasting contributions to show business." - Cool Ass Cinema

About the Author

Glenn Mitchell is a renowned author and historian of silent cinema and the early talkies, and a popular comedy scriptwriter for both radio and television.
