Adamson, Joe: Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Sometimes Zeppo: A Celebration of The Marx Brothers and a Satire on the Rest of the World
(Category: Books about the Marx Brothers, their films etc.)
"... 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)
