9780571166473: The Marx Brothers: Monkey Business, Duck Soup, A Day at the Races (Classic Screenplay Series)

How many times have you missed the best bits of a Marx Brothers movie, failing to catch Groucho's famous one-liners because you were still laughing at the bit with Harpo and the zipped-up banana? And what about the lemonade stall? The mirror section? And the blue-tined ballet sequence?

This book offers what the videos can't, ant that's a short cut to some of the funniest films of all time -- Monkey Business (1931), Duck Soup (1933), and A Day at the Races (1937) -- scripted by some of the wittiest screenwriters Hollywood ever produced.

In addition to a generous number of stills from each movie, this bumper edition also includes a cast and production crew list for movie buffs as well as an Introduction by Karl French.

Review:

"How do you know there are four stowaways on board this ship?" "They were singing Sweet Adeline!"
"Look at me. I've worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty."
"The Ambassador has had a change of heart." "A lot of good that'll do him. He's still got the same face!"
The mad remarks of the Marxes fly fast and furious in their finest films. But with this book in your basket you'll be wondrously wowed by their every word.
"Now go! and never darken my towels again!"
