Magazines leaving the depot
love seeing the most creative and fun sites
that carry the best stuff needed for a newly obsessive fan. I wander the internet looking for diamonds in the rough;
stories, photos, sounds, and expiriences you can find nowhere else.

History & Times
- Musicals101 documents Vaudeville, with a small mention of the Marx Brothers. This site is very knowledgable
about the history of the theatres in NYC, and gives help to tourists who may be travelling to theatres (local restaurants,
theatre locations, etc.) When reading Harpo's autobio, this site helped alot (the quotes about The Palace were
Read about how it happened and the real voice behind Harpo Marx, and explore the true identity of (Adolph) Arthur
Marx.BUY HARPO'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY,
"Harpo Speaks!" and read the first chapter! (thanks to Amazon.com). By the expirience of being
caught up in reading it myself at the moment, it's one book that you can't put down. Harpo tells the story in such
a way that you never get bored, talking straight to you while giving references as he goes along. You even hear
George Burns butt-in and comment about a few of the ordeals Harpo was involved in. So far, I've learned a few German
and Jewish words, and how to have fun for free! It was amazing how hard it was for a kid who forgave easily and
gave trust to anyone who came to him just so he could gain a companion, human or animal. Whether he was treated
well by the people or not... well, you'll just have to read it, wontcha! As for reccommendations, I give 30 out
of 30 black jelly beans for this book.
- My Acid Trip With
Groucho, is just what it sounds like. For the film
Skidoo, Groucho wanted to be expirienced with what LSD was like, he ended up saying a few profound things,
and the rest were silly. Paul Krassner tells of other profound Groucho quotes, including a Q&A seminar and
a misunderstanding between Groucho and Nixon's goverment. I found it nice to hear Groucho's views on the 60s yuppie
society, although it might not be for the kiddies to read. (*Harpo-less artical*)
about Allan Shermans run-in with his harp-playing
neighbor. (a story on YOYFs main page was taken from the artical available at Marx Out Of Print)
- To get to know Harpo better, visit Susan's Harpo Page. Girls,
don't forget your tear-rags, this one choked me up a bit.
Picshs and Vids
- Anicorn has many beautiful screencaps from Unknown Marx Brothers, Animal Crackers,
The Cocoanuts, and more.
- VIDEO of Harpo blowing
smoke-bubbles in COLOR.
- If it's a picsh you want of Harpo & Chico, this
place has them by the mill! (avoid the animals running the joint, its a zoo in there)
- Explore the many "picsh's", blinkies and polls at The Harpo Marx Site!
- Are you feeling like your surface no longer shines and your heartstrings
need readjusting? A trip to HarpoMarx.Net will certain make you feel like you're back to your ole marxist self again.
Watch moving GIFs from Marx movies (including "Room Service" in COLOR!), watch videos of Harpo's harp
solo's from nearly every film, and listen to Harpo speak (with his VOICE!!) on many occassions!
- Have fun around the wacky world of Marx at MarxBrothers.nu! But watch
out, the heavy graphics might be hard on those of you who have slow-moving computers.
- Robert B. Weide brought you the Marx Brothers In A Nutshell
doc video, and now brings you a webpage filled with photos of Marx relations and the heartbreaking story of the
guy buying a fake harp. Caveat emptor!
- And of course, every Marxist in the world knows about the Why A Duck? site. At WAD, I found a fun crowd of fans, alot of great sound clips, and my
current desktop theme. There's alot more to the site than just that, but those are the only sections I've dared
to venture into.
I wanna som'more, Boss!
