What a great book!
June 15, 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
I've known about this book by Kyle Crichton since the early 1970s but had never seen it in any libraries (it was published in 1950 so not likely to show up in any bookstores). So delighted to see so many different copies available on Amazon. This copy is perfect. It's a hard-cover first edition, but because it was used the price was a lot lower than some others that were being offered. The book has tons of fascinating background about the Marx Brothers, both personally and professionally, as well as a number of outstanding historical/archival photos of this one-of-a-kind family of comedians/movie actors/TV and radio stars who started in vaudeville and burlesque, then worked their way up to the Broadway stage and, from there, into film. They occupy a special place in American comedy lore, and this book is the first definitive book about them ever to appear. What a great book, and a fortunate find for me.
Has lots of good movie production info

This is like a movie critics handbook to Marx Brothers movies. There's a lot of production detail and historical data. But if you really want the meat and potatoes of everything Marx Brothers, then you simply must read Harpo Speaks. Harpo Speaks has everything and more. Don't leave this planet until you have read Harpo Speaks.
Interesting book !
