Fleming Marx, Susan, with Robert S. Bader: Speaking of Harpo
From the publisher: "Her story is the counterpoint to the beloved and acclaimed Harpo Marx autobiography, 'Harpo Speaks!'. Susan's frank, opinionated perspective provides a true look behind the curtain and details Harpo's last years, following the publication of his own book."

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."

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)

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)
