"Cedric Hardwicke is my fifth favorite actor, the first four being the Marx Brothers."-George Bernard Shaw

From their early days as touring vaudeville performers to the creation of their great movie classics, the Marx Brothers' triumphant confrontation with the ordinary world is documented in a brilliant, witty book that will be a bible for all avid Marxists. Joe Adamson has punctuated the Brothers' manic story with generous excerpts from the classic dialogue in their films and priceless photographs from the private collections of the Marx family.

"Wittily written, ingeniously annotated exploration into the lives and works of these unique entertainers."-Chicago Tribune

"The most exhaustively researched history of the Marx Brothers' careers in the English language. Adamson has thoroughly studied and documented the process by which the four maniacs' films came to be. He has conducted dozens of interviews with the surviving participants, and synthesized much previously available but scattered material. He reproduces much unused fodder for the Brothers' cannons in their war on sanity, which every Marxist will want to gorge himself on." -Columbia (University) Daily Spectator

"If you are a Marx Brothers fan, Adamson's book is the one you will cherish."-Louisville Times
