My favorite of all the books of the Marx Brothers. The focus is Groucho but all are covered one way of another - even Gummo! Love the reproductions of so much ephemera, photos and text. This book covers the lot.

It would have been complete if the book had been published a year later, but isn't it great to know that Groucho got to see this before he died!

I believe this book is the source of the start of why I work so hard looking for memorabilia and photos for our Florida museums. This book clearl
This book is a visual joy, with hundreds of photos of Groucho and the rest of the Marx family. There isn't a whole lot of original text, however, as most of it is lifted from Groucho's earlier books. The pictures make it all worthwhile, however.
