|Groucho Marx - You Bet Your Life
Lowest new price: $2.95

List price: $3.99
Groucho Marx is one of many stars to make a radio broadcast their debut, only to move to TV once the radio show reached popularity. But Marx didn't go the usual route with a sitcom or talk show; rather, he made a name for himself hosting a game show called, You Bet Your Life. The show, broadcast on radio, originally aired in 1947, becoming a televised radio show in 1950.
|The Unknown Marx Brothers
Lowest new price: $65.89

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 legendary Marx Brothers – Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo – made their motion picture debut in the outrageously funny adaptation of their Broadway play The Cocoanuts. Groucho portrays the owner of the Hotel de Cocoanut who tries to fleece everyone from innocent bellboys and bellgirls to wealthy society matron Mrs. Potter (Margaret Dumont). Chico and Harpo play resort hotel con men who arrive with empty suitcases they plan to fill by robbing guests. Featuring elaborate musical productions with music by Academy Award winner Irving Berlin, this comedy treasure includes some of the Marx Brothers' best stage routines, such as Groucho's land auction, the excruciatinglyfunny 'viaduct' dialogue and Polly Potter's engagement party.

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!

Groucho Marx’s last leading role sees him deploying all his patented patter and double-talk as a Navy lifer out to save a pal from his “inherited” racehorse. Navy seaman Benny Linn (Marx) is flabbergasted when his pal, Navy seaman Tim Dunnovan (William Bendix), squanders his inheritance on Little Erin, a horse he’s never seen. Talking their put-upon superior into granting them five days leave in order to unswindle Dunnovan, Benny sets to shore with purpose and chicanery in mind. Tracking down the horse’s trainer (Gene Lockhart), the salts discover their seemingly lame horse has a secret twin – Little Shamrock – owned by lovely carhop Jane Sweet (Marie Wilson). In short order, we have fake Southern gentlemen, switched and double-switched equines, angry gangsters, stumbling saboteurs and one henpecked businessman (Don DeFore), who may just be Jane’s true love. In order to save the day, it’s time for Groucho to ride!
