Well, That's Just Great
I want to come up with a magic act so I can call myself “The Great Depressio!”

Every illusion would fail until finally I just gave up and curled up in the corner muttering self loathing comments in my terrible Chico Marx style Italian accent.

"Hey-a whatta you think was-a gonna happen? Nobody love-a you."

I just need to find a really positive assistant and call her Celexa. Balance the act out.

People would pay to see that, right?

1917. Chico might be 30 here, or he might be 29, but either way he’s the oldest.

Left to right: Arthur (Harpo), Leonard (Chico), Milton (the immortal Gummo), and Julius (Groucho).

Later in 1917, Gummo joined the U.S. Army, thus ending his career in show business.

Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.

The next time I see you, remind me not to talk to you.

Maybe the most famous scene from any Marx Brothers film. Seen in full context for ultimate excellence!

For yensid1138 who’s watching his first Marx Brothers film tonight, “A Night At The Opera.”
