Marx, Groucho: Groucho and Me
"Goes over the basics. You get a lot of the staple Groucho material in here." (Teej) / "Groucho's own autobiography, full of anecdotes and thoughts from the most articulate of the brothers. ... not necessarily a terrific source of hard facts, as Groucho is very prone to sacrifice accuracy for entertainment; but a marvelous read all around." (Robert Rose)

Marx, Groucho: Memoirs Of A Mangy Lover
assistance by Arthur Sheekman.
"Humorous history of love." (Eyles, 1969) / "...just a collection of anecdotes and tall tales. It needs to be read as a collection of comedy routines. They make more sense if you can picture Groucho delivering them as a monologue." (John Benz Fentner)

Marx, Groucho: The Groucho Letters

Marx, Groucho: Groucho Marx and Other Short Stories and Tall Tales: Selected Writings of Groucho Marx
edited by Robert S. Bader
"A collection of Groucho's writing, mostly magazine articles, and a discussion of his writing, including speculations about his collaboration with Arthur Sheekman, who is alleged to have been a major contributor to much of it. Good, funny stuff; many of the articles serve as the source for other writing about the Brothers, particularly "Bad Times are Good Memories" and "Up From Pantages." (Robert Rose)

Marx, Groucho with Richard J. Anobile: The Marx Brothers Scrapbook
"Quite mean-spirited, and seldom funny, but the photos and memorabilia are invaluable." (Wayne Wong) / "Seems pretty mean spirited, and while it's got a wealth of information, much of it shows an elderly, angry Groucho." (Jeff Kyle) / "Transcripts of several interviews with Groucho, along with several others, including Gummo, Zeppo, Harpo's widow Susan, Jack Benny, and a number of others who knew and worked with the team; plus photos and other materials that cannot be found elsewhere, much of it from Groucho's personal collection. Groucho sued Anobile to stop publication when he realized that he intended to use the transcripts verbatim - dirty words, possibly libelous stories, and all. The book is therefore brutally frank and sometimes distasteful, and in some places poorly researched, but I consider it valuable if only for revealing some of the real names behind many oft-told, exaggerated or fictionalized Marx stories."

Marx, Harpo with Rowland Barber: Harpo Speaks!
"Extremely amusing autobiography of the silent brother, with particular focus on his youth and the vaudeville/Broadway years, and Harpo's relationship with his close friend, Alexander Woollcott. Not the best source for facts about the films (or necessarily a reliable source of hard facts at all), it's still a completely wonderful book." (Robert Rose) / "... it tends to leave out the more bizarre side of Harpo's character, but what's there is marvelous stuff. If you thought Harpo was just a great clown, this book will disabuse you of that notion in no time at all." (John Benz Fentner)

"[MB and DS] [...] were built up from a dialogue continuity [...] amplified with material gained from a shot-by-shot viewing of each film." "[ADATR] combines the script with the dialogue and the action in the film itself." (Publisher's note) This script of ADATR differs from the earlier Viking edition in the way that it only has the actual movie dialogue.

Kaufman, George S. et al.: Kaufman & Co.: Broadway Comedies
The text of Animal Crackers included in this book combines two scripts of the stage version, one from Sam Harris' papers at the Princeton University Library and one from Groucho's papers at the Library of Congress. The version from Groucho's papers is the main basis for this edition. This had never been published before. The appendix lists differences between the two versions and explains various references to people or events of the 1920's.
Also includes works by: Edna Ferber, Moss Hart, Ring Lardner, and Morrie Ryskind. Plays included are: The Royal Family, June Moon, Once in a Lifetime, Of Thee I Sing, Dinner at Eight, Stage Door, You Can't Take It with You, and The Man Who Came to Dinner (in which the character of Banjo is supposed to be based on Harpo.)

Rapp, Philip: The Television Scripts of Philip Rapp
"In late 1958, Rapp pitched an idea for a series called Deputy Seraph, starring the Marx Brothers, which would wind up being their penultimate appearance on film together. Only a few minutes of their scene was shot, however, along with the photos inside this book, and nothing else. The project was scrapped too quickly once Chico failed to pass the medical physical exam required for insuring its stars during the series. Those few minutes have since wound up on DVD, but this is the first public viewing of their entire divine adventure." (amazon)

Marx, Arthur: Son of Groucho
More or less Arthur's autobiography, but has of course something about Groucho. / "I personally like this one better than Arthur's biography of his father ("Life With Groucho"); it is more entertainingly written and, I think, more frank in many ways. A good deal of it concerns Arthur's own adventures, on the amateur tennis circuit, in the Coast Guard, as a budding writer, and as a man who divorces his first wife to marry his sister-in-law; but Groucho never stays out of the narrative for long. (Question: Did Groucho ever read this book, and find out how Arthur flummoxed him with the "Life With Groucho" galleys?) " (Robert Rose)

Marx, Bill: Son of Harpo Speaks

And what about those weird, maybe fatalistic happenings you've experienced that can only be described as 'too-Hollywood-to-believe?'" - Bill Marx

Marx, Maxine: Growing Up With Chico
"It was not a terribly pleasant read, because it shows fairly plainly all the problems that Chico had, with gambling, women, etc." (Jeff Kyle) / "Chico's daughter tells us she was upset by her father's portrayal in the "Scrapbook." I don't know if she'd be reassured or dismayed that I feel her analysis of Chico was not substantially different (if considerably more affectionate): she portrays her father as an irresponsible compulsive gambler and womanizer, who nonetheless had a tremendous charisma and magnetism that earned the undying affection and loyalty of many people, including herself, her mother, and Minnie Marx herself. She does make a good case for Chico's importance to the act, for being the only one of the brothers who could work effectively as a solo, and for having more musical talent than he is often given credit for. A lot of good stuff, much of it not to be found elsewhere." (Robert Rose)

Adamson, Joe: Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Sometimes Zeppo: A Celebration of The Marx Brothers and a Satire on the Rest of the World
"... well researched and well written (and funny) ... his Marx Brothers tome is absolutely heads and tails the best I've read, and I've read 'em all." (WGW) / "Adamson has done a superb job here, not only breaking down each film to discuss its strong and weak points, but detailing the history of each, from conception through filming, with particular emphasis on the scriptwriting phase. Plenty of biographical material, too, and Adamson has taken pains to avoid reprinting popular misconceptions about everything from birth dates to practical jokes, sorting fact from fiction with detailed research and interviews with virtually everyone who worked with the Marxes and was still alive to talk about it. Most of all, Adamson's style is nearly as hilarious as the films themselves; the chapter on Horsefeathers belongs in some anthology on great American humor. Even the footnotes are amusing, one reviewer noted, correctly. " (Robert Rose)

Anobile, Richard J.: Why a Duck?
"An attempt to present the team's film humor in book form, by combining transcripts of dialogue from classic Marx routines with frame blow-ups from the films themselves. A good idea at the time, but now rather obsolete, since videotapes of the films are widely available. Still worth picking up if you happen upon an inexpensive used copy, if only for Groucho's introduction (and for that matter, a well-written preface by Richard F. Shepard). " (Robert Rose)

Arce, Hector: Groucho
"A fairly accurate, unbiased, but not-too-bleak bio. Quite long, and well cited." (Wayne Wong) / "Probably the best thing about it is that it's not the usual puff piece that authorized biographies usually degenerate into. Arce says Groucho told him to "tell it all" and he's certainly done that. He's got some pretty harsh things to say about just about everybody including Groucho and even Minnie but it's clear that he never lost his affection and respect for his subject. If the book has a failing it's Arce's unfortunate tendency to wallow in pop psychology to explain motivations, particularly Groucho's sex life and attitude toward women in general."

Bader, Robert S.: Four of the Three Musketeers - The Marx Brothers on Stage
From the publisher: "Before film made them international comedy legends, the Marx Brothers developed their comic skills on stage for twenty-five years. In Four of the Three Musketeers: The Marx Brothers on Stage, Robert S. Bader offers the first comprehensive history of the foursome's hardscrabble early years honing their act in front of live audiences.
From Groucho's debut in 1905 to their final live performances of scenes from A Night in Casablanca in 1945, the brothers' stage career shows how their characters and routines evolved before their arrival in Hollywood. Four of the Three Musketeers draws on an unmatched array of sources, many not referenced elsewhere. Bader's detailed portrait of the struggling young actors both brings to vivid life a typical night on the road for the Marx Brothers and also illuminates the inner workings of the vaudeville business, especially during its peak in the 1920s.
As Bader traces the origins of the characters that would later come to be beloved by filmgoers, he also skillfully scrapes away the accretion of rumors and mythology perpetuated not only by fans and writers but by the Marx Brothers themselves. Revealing, vital, and entertaining, Four of the Three Musketeers will take its place as an essential reference for this iconic American act."

Blount Jr., Roy: Hail, Hail, Euphoria!
"Presenting the Marx Brothers in Duck Soup, the Greatest War Movie Ever Made"
This book provides a lot of background information about the movie, the people involved and the time when it was made. My main criticism would be that this background information sometimes goes too far — I don't want any speculations why there are more movies with mice than with ducks. As the book goes along Blount stays more on topic and overall it is a good read. He has done his homework, although the book contains a few factual errors. It would have been nice to have bibliography and index.

Charney, Maurice: The Comic World of the Marx Brothers' Movies: Anything Further Father?
The publisher advertises this book as "filling an academic void", but others have been there before. The most part of the book is taken up by giving synopsis of the movies. The author is looking at 15(!) Marx Brothers movies by including "Copacabana" and "Double Dynamite". He claims to have not been able to get a copy of "A Girl in Every Port", which is easily available outside the US. There are a few factual errors and typos and a lot of facts are repeated and some seem irrelevant. In general the author doesn't seems to be really interested in the Marx Brothers and the book doesn't add anything to an academic look at their work.

Eyles, Allen: The Marx Brothers: Their World of Comedy
This was first published in a small paperback in 1966 and only three years later as a hardcover. / "A careful analysis of each of the Marx films; very comprehensive; almost too much so, in fact nowhere near as fun a read as Adamson, and focused almost entirely on what we see on screen rather than how it came to be. On the other hand, it does a very good job of considering the Marx film canon as a whole, drawing comparisons and showing parallels between the various films, rather than taking Adamson's approach of breaking things down into scenes. A good contrast, and worth having." (Robert Rose)

Fix , Charlene: Harpo Marx as Trickster
From the publisher's website: "The author invites readers to spend time in the pleasure of Harpo's cinematic company while comparing him to tricksters from folklore, myth and legend. The book demonstrates how Harpo, the sweetest, wildest, most magical Marx brother, accomplishes the archetypal trickster's work. Thirteen chapters examine Harpo's trickster persona closely in each of the Marx Brothers' films"

Frank, Josh; Heidecker, Tim; Pertega, Manuela (Illustrator) : Giraffes on Horseback Salad: Salvador Dali, the Marx Brothers, and the Greatest Movie Never Made
From Amazon: "It sounds like fan fiction, but it's true: modern art icon Salvador Dali struck up a friendship with chaotic pantomimer Harpo Marx, which led to a proposed film, Giraffes on Horseback Salad. Rejected by MGM studios, the script was thought lost forever[sic]. But author Josh Frank found it, and with comedian and writer Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric; Tim & Eric's Zone Theory) and Spanish artist and comics creator Manuela Pertega, he's recreated the film that Dali and the Marx Brothers would have made...as a graphic novel that presents the story in all its full-color, fully cinematic, fully surreal glory."

Hahn, Matthew: The Animated Marx Brothers
From the publisher's website: "To many people, The Marx Brothers always seemed cartoonish. Small wonder that film animators [...] caricatured them in countless animated appearances in theatrical cartoons. Their animated likenesses have since been wisecracking in television cartoons, direct-to-video movies, fan films, commercials, flip books, avatars, emoji, a slot machine, and two TV pilots so rare they were once thought not to exist.
[...] Matthew Hahn's search for every animated appearance of a Marx brother has trailed longer than Groucho's coattails. His discoveries include the backstories of the studios, moviemakers, and stars, rare test drawings from the Smithsonian Institution National Portrait Gallery, abandoned projects, connections, coincidences, and apocrypha."

Hoberman, J.: Duck Soup (BFI Film Classics)
From the publisher: "Hoberman's analysis provides a historical and political context as well as an in-depth production history, drawing on primary sources and emphasizing director McCarey's prior work along with the Marx Brothers as well as the situation at Paramount, a substantial synopsis, and an account of the movie's initial reception, concluding with its subsequent elevation to comic masterpiece."
"Hoberman provides a lot of background information. This book may not be for the uninitiated, but for any Marx Brothers fan this is a good read." (ST)

Keesey, Douglas: Marx Brothers
Movie Icons Series.
Apart from a short introductory note and a basic chronology and filmography, the main part of this book is a "Filmography in Pictures" with notes on the pictures and quotes from the movies or by people working on them. There are loads of film stills and promotional pictures, a few of which I cannot remember seeing anywhere else before.

Koestenbaum, Wayne: The Anatomy of Harpo Marx
Described on the publisher's website as "a luxuriant, detailed play-by-play account of Harpo Marx's physical movements as captured on screen". The author gives the best description of his book himself: "I will not seek [Bill Marx] out, lest he say: 'keep your fantasies away from my father's image'." This really sums it up. The book looks at Harpo's gestures and expressions and over-analyses them. Koestenbaum shows off his knowledge of 20th century philosophy, but I don't think you can learn anything about Harpo. This review comes to a similar conclusion. WGW writes: "Koestenbaum is hermetically sealed in his own mind - as if he couldn't care less whether his readers have any clue what he's talking about. Worst of all is that Kostenbaum clearly has a brilliant mind, and a gift for language. This book, however, really should not exist anywhere but on his own computer's hard drive, where he can use it to get himself off whenever he needs to. I wish he had left the rest of the world out of it."

Metzner, Holger: Say, am I stewed or did a grapefruit just flew by?
(Untertitel/secondary title) Die Komik der Marx Brothers zwischen Unterhaltung und Avantgarde
Abstract: "Eine hermeneutische Analyse einer der erfolgreichsten und gleichzeitig avantgardistischsten Comedy-Gruppen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Marx-Brothers haben nicht nur ein Millionenpublikum unter einfachen amerikanischen Arbeitern gefunden, sondern auch Impulse für die bildende und darstellende Kunst Europas gegeben. Die Ursache dieses Erfolges liegt wesentlich in ihrer Verwurzelung in den großen Krisen und Umbrüchen ihrer Zeit.
Die vorliegende Arbeit verfolgt den Zusammenhang zwischen komischem Ausdruck und lebensweltlicher Realität. Groucho, Harpo und Chico - als festgelegte komische Figuren entstammen sie einer uralten Komödientradition. Dabei präsentieren alle drei eine jeweils verschiedene Lachkultur. Im Vergleich dieser historischen Vorbilder mit der Realisierung durch die Marx-Brothers in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts werden die Abgründe, Absurditäten und Neurosen einer kapitalistischen Gesellschaft deutlich, die unserer eigenen Zeit in ihrer Schnellebigkeit, Dynamik und Aggressivität sehr nahe ist."

Yahn, Michael A.: The Music of the Marx Brothers
A Bio-Discography of the Works of Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Gummo, and Zeppo Marx
" In the 1930s and 40s the Marx Brothers kept the world laughing in good times and bad with such screen classics as Animal Crackers, Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera. Comedy was always the driving force behind the Marx Brothers team on-screen. Off-screen they were three unique individuals who shared a love of music. Music from Marx Brothers' plays and movies has been recorded by a variety of artists since the early 1920s, but it may surprise some to learn that the Marx Brothers, themselves, also left behind an impressive body of work on record."

Celati, Gianni: La Farsa Dei Tre Clandestini
This is an automated (but manually cleaned up) translation of an Italian webpage (http://www.baskerville.it/Blibri/cb/celati.html) about the book: "Who of us has never wished as a child, to re-live an adventure as some great hero of the screen? Well, Gianni Celati has captured this opportunity and she offers it as a scenario for a film of the Marx Brothers. The trace of the text is obtained from the works of the great comedians. The situations in which Groucho, Harpo and Chico get involved are the surrealistic and absurd, while corruption and speculation serve as a background to this farce. Who loves vaudeville and has been enjoying ' Duck Soup ', ' Animal Crackers ', ' A Night at the Opera', will be in a position to pick up the message. A lot authenticity and often as innovative as what the Marx Brothers have left us. Gianni Celati gives back a dream to us."

Novel about a man who thinks he is Groucho. Although Joe Swerling has this delusion for a small part of the book, it is also fun to read when no Grouchoism is around. Jo Swerling was the name of the director of "Humorisk" (a coincidence?)

Goulart, Ron: Groucho Marx, Master Detective
First in the series. "It was a fast read but not a very good read. It was not a great mystery and the portrayal of Groucho was a poor mix of his stage and real life characters." (IJD) [I agree, ST]

Palmer, Stuart: You Bet Your Life
Palmer wrote several novels and stories featuring Hildegarde Withers, a spinster schoolteacher who is an amateur sleuth. "[In this story] Miss Withers goes on the TV show as a contestant - a set-up - to announce that she knows the whereabouts of a missing crook. ... Groucho makes an appearance and banters with her on the show for a few lines before the plot takes off. Palmer could be authentic because he had been on the Oct 21, 1954 episode. ... The story's a trifle, but still a nice addition to any collection." (SC)

Sim, David: Cerebus the Aardvark
(Comic) Lord Julius (Groucho) shows up quite frequently. Lord Julius was introduced early on as the head of state of a country called Palnu, and who virtually controls the economy of most of the known world single-handedly. One can guess at the results. He also has a painted-on mustache instead of a real one. In at least one issue, Sim also introduced a Duke Leonardi from New Serpa, who spoke with an outrageous Italian accent.

Waldrop, Howard: Save a Place in the Lifeboat for Me
"Waldrop is a master of humorous, innovative, sometimes disturbing short fiction that plays on 'alternate history' tropes and a stunning amount of research. One of his earlier stories, '...Lifeboat' depicts Harpo and Chico, Laurel and Hardy, and Abbot and Costello going back (yes, back) in time in an attempt to save Buddy Holly. They are _apparently_ returned from an ambiguous afterlife and appear in the story as we know them on screen ('_Honk honk_ went Arthur...'). The god who appears to be running the operation is a mysterious figure named Quackenbush who make a 'burning bush' appearance in a TV show called 'You Bet Your Duck.' "

Dale, Alan: Comedy Is a Man in Trouble
"Rather than attempt of account for every low-comedy star and his/her entire repertoire, Dale focuses on a handful of key superstars - specifically Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, the Marx Brothers and Jerry Lewis - and combines biography with cinematic analysis to create a convincing timeline of the rise, fall, and rebirth of one of the movies' most popular genres. He also takes time to examine the controversial role of women in Hollywood comedy, ultimately anointing Katherine Hepburn as the Queen of Slapstick." - Fade In

Winokur, Mark Brian: American Laughter: Immigrants, Ethnicity, and 1930's Hollywood Film Comedy
Abstract: "My dissertation begins with the fact that American film comedy is produced by a disproportionate number of ethnics and immigrants, from creative staff (Chaplin, the Marx Brothers) to businessmen (Mayer, Thalberg, Zukor). I use historical parallels in literature to justify the sence that thematic treatment of assimilation in comedy is a distinctly American development. [..] But the bulk of the work consists of readings of three comedies, and so of three comic subgenres: Modern Times and silent comedy, Duck Soup and antic comedy, The Thin Man and the screwball. "

Beach, Christopher: Class, Language, and American Film Comedy
Amazon description: "... focuses on [...] language, class, and social relationships in early sound comedies by the Marx Brothers, the screwball comedies of the 1930s [...], 1950s comedies [...] and contemporary films [...]. Beach argues that sound and narrative expanded the semiotic and ideological potential of a film, providing moments of genuine social critique and also mass entertainment."

Bermel, Albert: Farce: A History from Aristophanes to Woody Allen
Abstract: "In a celebration of the expansiveness and inclusiveness of farce, this book describes the art form rather than defines it. [..] The book reviews a Hollywood-inspired resurgence of farce [..]. The book also discusses the works of such modern masters of farce as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, the Marx Brothers, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, and Monty Python."

Epstein, Lawrence J.: Mixed Nuts: America's Love Affair with Comedy Teams from Burns and Allen to Belushi and Aykroyd
"Organizing this work chronologically, Epstein (The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America) provides a lively history of entertainment from early vaudeville through radio, film and television. He's especially good at viewing humor through a sociological prism, showing, for example, how the cynicism of the early Marx Brothers needed to be reworked to accommodate a Depression-era mentality. With FDR's New Deal, Epstein explains, Groucho's character was made more likable. In fact, comedy teams were most popular during America's tough times, such as WWII, when Abbott and Costello delivered much-needed relief." (Amazon/Publishers Weekly)

Epstein, Lawrence J. : American Jewish Films: The Search for Identity
"This is a thematic survey of American films with significant Jewish content that made an important statement about America. Both familiar and lesser known films are included. An introduction discusses why American Jews were attracted to films as audiences, performers and business people, and evaluates how films help audiences think about their lives. The book then focuses on themes and representative and important films, placing them in their cultural contexts. One of the aspects of American Jewish life brought out by the films in general is the tensions between an American and a Jewish identity and between a Jewish identity and a broader human identity." (Publisher's website)
The book has a few pages about the Marx Brothers' movies.
