So I really have no experience with The Marx Brothers. I have never seen any of the movies, and I've only seen a couple of clips from things.
I have more experience with their imitators:
M*A*S*H -- Yankee Doodle Doctor episode
I love Lucy with Harpo and Lucy
So when I started searching, I of course thought: duck. Yeah, I like photographing wildlife! Duck Soup -- Maybe someone eating a bowl of soup and there's a duck swimming around in it.
But then I read the story behind the title:
In the 1930s, "duck soup" was a common American slang phrase referring to an easy-to-do task; an equivalent expression today would be "piece of cake." When Groucho was asked during an interview for an explanation, he quipped, "Take two turkeys, one goose, four cabbages, but no duck, and mix them together. After one taste, you'll duck soup for the rest of your life.".
So hmmm... no duck soup for me!
So I started searching youtube and came across the The Mirror Scene
The kid was home for Thanksgiving break. We found the glasses at Party City.
I really wanted a full length shot, but I didn't have a good doorway for it, so I had to crop in.
I was truly fun watching them play. I loved the silliness. For how enjoyable the marx brothers clip was, watching them try it was 10 times as fun. It will make me smile for quite some time to come.
Thanks for the comments!
