The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection on DVD

About the Marx Brothers

Before their silver-screen comedies enjoyed immense popularity, the Marx Brothers—Groucho, Chico, Harpo, Zeppo, and Gummo (who was never seen onscreen)—drew crowds to vaudeville stages across the country. Their blend of slapstick, wordplay, song, and goofy dance steps continued to resonate as they made the leap to film, and the brothers remain some of the most important figures in the pantheon of American comedy.

Trivia
  • In 1929, the brothers worked on their first movie, The Cocoanuts, in the morning, then appeared in Animal Crackers on stage at night. Animal Crackers became their second feature for the big screen.
  • Despite his many interludes at the piano, Chico Marx had little professional training—he skipped nearly all his childhood lessons.
  • The brothers were so rambunctious on set, it is said that they were sometimes locked in a jail cell between takes so as not to cause mayhem (or simply leave).

If you like the Marx Brother's you'll love this DVD. They spent years in vaudeville perfecting their sketches with a perfect timing. If you enjoy slapstick comedy, there are non better than the Marx Brothers.
