    I have been watching Marx Brother's films

    since about 1942. A Night at the opera and Duck Soup are my favourites. Also I had seen Chico and Grouch Marx perform on the Music Halls. Grouch's Diary is one of the funniest books I know.It seems tome that they have had more effect on society than their distant relative Karl...

    Have seen "Duck Soup" about 25 times

    and think that it is one of the greatest comedies in film history. There were so many great scenes in their movies: the Aviator-Speech, the Sanity-Clause-Scene, the Trial in "Duck Soup", the Cabin-Scene. What makes the movies so special - according to my opinion - is the great...

    The Marx Brothers' humour is timeless. My Dad loved them and introduced me to them and I did the same for my children, who can now quote great chunks of dialogue just as they do with Star Wars films. I refuse to select a favourite from amongst their films - each one contains...

    The Brothers

     Marx Brothers with Lou Gehrig                 One of the great all-time comedy teams. The films with all that crazy unconventional humor,silliness,hilarity have and will continue to be everlasting. Don't forget their musical talent.

    I <3 The Marx Bros

    "He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot." Groucho Marx I have gotten my younger siblings hooked and have been slowly but surely getting others hooked. I love that even if I have had the worse day I can put in Duck Soup...

    You Bet Your Life I Am

    Groucho was so far ahead of his time.  His subtle humour and inuendo are still funny and very modern.  At times very risque too.  It's a wonder he even got away with some of it.  Their movies are so zany it makes me LMAO.

    I'm a Dreamer, Montreal

    I remember the first time I watched a Marx Brothers movie - Duck Soup.  I was probably about ten or eleven.  Within a few days, I had practically the entire movie memorized.  Everything about them enthralled me - the verbal sparring, the physical zaniness, how the...

    Oh Wow...

    Gods, I remember when my father, bless his soul, introduced me to the Marx Bros. Harpo had the same exact curly hair as my dad. In fact when he was about my age (younger, actually) he was part of a Marx Bros fanclub in his school. There were four, I think, "Harpos" in...

    Great Group

    Oh, this is a great group.  I've been watching their movies since I was kid.  I own almost all of them and they're still fantastic.  Groucho is my favorite and Duck Soup is my favorite movie, probably followed by Night at the Opera.  Now I want to watch them...

    Marx Brothers Fan

    The Marx Brothers were Comedic geniuses of their time. They created tons of laughs from their comedy and movies. I have recently became a huge fan. My husband and I both enjoy them very much. We watch a movie like A Day At The Races, Night in Casablanca, or A Night at the Opera...
