Comedian and dramatist Mitchell (The Laurel and Hardy Encyclopedia) shares everything you ever wanted to know about comedy's most famous family, from their abandoned projects (including their first, silent film, Humorisk) to how Groucho satisfied his longstanding wish to have a radio show (it was with You Bet Your Life) to how the brothers dealt with potential competitors, such as Buster Keaton. Organizing the wealth of information in alphabetical entries, Mitchell covers the Marx brothers' films, actors they worked with, techniques and studio interactions. He's also included loads of movie posters and photos showing the brothers yukking it up. The format, though comprehensive and useful for looking up specific queries (e.g., when and where did the bulk of the filming of Duck Soup take place?), might intimidate casual browsers; the book is best suited for true Marx brothers enthusiasts who want to hone their trivia knowledge. 240 b&w photos.
