|The Unknown Marx Brothers
Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $11.23
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

He may be an underpaid bank clerk but his voice is worth a million bucks. Frank Sinatra is $42.50-a-week teller Johnny Dalton, who comes across big money – and big trouble – in this frothy comedy. It’s Only Money, Sinatra sings with his quipster pal Emil (Groucho Marx). Yet lack of it keeps him from marrying fellow bank employee Mibs (Jane Russell). Before you can say "romantic comedy," Johnny rescues a bookie from a beating and receives a betting tip in appreciation. The appreciation appreciates into thousands. But there’s a catch: the bank is short $75,000. And cash-flush Johnny is Suspect #1. Maybe Johnny’s lot will be just Kisses and Tears (a Sinatra/Russell duet and the second of the film’s two Jule Styne/Sammy Cahn tunes). The good news: Double Dynamite will also be love, laughs and stardust galore.
