|The Unknown Marx Brothers
Lowest new price: $71.80
Lowest used price: $15.95
List price: $9.98
Originally broadcast on PBS in 1993 and narrated by Leslie Nielsen, this comprehensive documentary charts the career of the Marx Brothers--Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and sometimes Zeppo--from their beginnings on the vaudeville circuit to their final appearances on popular TV programs and commercials of the 1950s and early '60s. Featuring interviews with many surviving family members, friends, and close associates, the film covers the brothers' early stage careers in great detail, including the origins of their stage names and rare film footage of a sketch from one of their most popular comedy plays. Also fascinating is a long-lost film clip of Harpo in a silent film from 1925--four years before the Marx Brothers made their screen debut in Cocoanuts. The Marx Brothers' film career is not the central focus here. Rather, the film shows us the brothers offscreen (through rare home movies and newsreels) and especially after their retirement from movies. Revealing and affectionate toward its subjects, this is a must-see for any Marx Brothers fan. The DVD includes several hilarious outtakes from Groucho's quiz-show career as host of You Bet Your Life, and a "Zoom-links" feature that offers additional film clips at given points throughout the documentary. --Jeff Shannon

The four Marx Brothers – Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo – are at the top of their game in the uproarious parody of college life, Horse Feathers. As president of Huxley College, the fun-loving Professor Wagstaff (Groucho) attempts to help his son (Zeppo) finally graduate after 12 years by arranging to “buy” professional football players for an upcoming big game against rival Darwin University. The plan takes an unexpected twist, however, when a bootlegger (Chico) and a dogcatcher (Harpo) are mistaken for the athletes and accidentally hired instead. Featuring their trademark insanity, including a climatic football sequence that has to be seen to be believed, this quintessential Marx Brothers’ comedy earned a place on the AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs list.

Groucho Marx's quick wit and rapid one-liners-- along with his distinctive moustache, eyebrows, and ever-present cigar--made him one of the most famous, iconic comedians of all time! Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Gummo, and Zeppo-- collectively known as the Marx Brothers-- made some of the most popular comedies in American cinema including The Coconuts, Duck Soup, and A Night at the Opera.
In 1947 Groucho began a radio show called You Bet Your Life, which spawned the TV series three years later. Groucho appeared, as himself, as emcee and star. The show's premise was simple: contestants sought to win up to $10,000 by correctly answering a sequence of four questions. If they unwittingly said a "secret word" they would win $100 bonus, delivered by a papier-mâché duck lowered from above. The best part of the show was the humor and banter Groucho ad-libbed with his contestants. You Bet Your Life ran for 11 years, making it one of the longest running shows in the history of television!
