Colleagues and scholars from coast to coast, across Bass Strait and all the ships at sea.
Today, August 19, marks 37 years since the passing of Groucho Marx. He was 86.
The Marx Brothers produced some of the funniest films of all time.
Many times I ventured with my family on a Saturday evening in the 1970's to the Academy Twin Theatre in Paddington, Sydney, to view these gems.
Every time I watch one of these films now, I can hear my late father roaring with laughter. Memories I shall always treasure.
Here's a classic Groucho quote from Horse Feathers: "Well, I thought my razor was dull until I heard his speech. And that reminds me of a story that's so dirty I'm ashamed to think of it myself."
Here's one of their greatest scenes: The Crowded Cabin Room from A Night At The Opera watch here
I've also attached below movie posters from all their films in chronological order.
Who can view these and not feel good?
