"I'm not a stooge, I'm a straight lady -- the best in Hollywood. There is an art to playing the straight role. You must build up your man but never top him, never steal the laughs." - Margaret Dumont in 1937 🌠 ••• Happy 136th birthday to the sweetest Margaret Dumont! 😇 I'm just starting to explore more and more of this amazing lady's filmography and her wonderful work with the Marx brothers.

#Repost @the_marxbrothers with @get_repost ・・・ Groucho, and Margaret Dumont, in “Duck Soup” 1933. Margaret Dumont apparently didn’t get any of Groucho’s jokes, and would often ask what everyone was laughing about. #ducksoup #1933 #margaretdumont #comedy #grouchomarx #themarxbrothers #marxbrothers
Funny, yet true.

Marx Brothers edit I made for my love @anjourekloos the other night. She has enjoyed their antics for many years, I'm still learning about these whacky guys through her. It ain't for the boids! #themarxbrothers #marxbrothers #grouchomarx #harpomarx #chicomarx #zeppomarx

Remembering a legend who helped to define the voice of American comedy when the movies were just learning to talk. Born October 2, 1890. #happybirthday #grouchomarx #themarxbrothers #helloimustbegoing #classichollywood
Stage, Film, Radio, and Television Comedian Groucho Marx 🎥🎬🎞📺 Julius Henry Marx (October 2, 1890 – August 19, 1977) was an American comedian, writer, stage, film, radio, and television star. He was known as a master of quick wit and is widely considered one of America's greatest and most gifted comedians. His distinctive appearance, carried over from his days in vaudeville, included quirks such as an exaggerated stooped posture, glasses, cigar, and a thick greasepaint mustache and eyebrows. Groucho Marx made 26 movies, 13 of them with his brothers Chico and Harpo. His characters were known for improvising insults to stuffy dowagers (often played by Margaret Dumont) and anyone else who stood in his way. The team made two of their Broadway hits—The Cocoanuts and Animal Crackers—into movies, most famously for their first feature for MGM titled A Night at the Opera. He also had a successful solo career, most notably as the host of the radio and television game show You Bet Your Life. On the 1974 Academy Awards telecast, Marx's final major public appearance, Jack Lemmon presented him with an honorary Academy Award to a standing ovation. The award honored his brothers as well: "in recognition of his brilliant creativity and for the unequalled achievements of the Marx Brothers in the art of motion picture comedy." #grouchomarx #groucho #marxbrothers #themarxbrothers #zeppo #gummo #chicomarx #harpo #harpomarx #stage #vaudeville #broadway #film #radioshow #television #anightattheopera #youbetyourlife #comedyteam #brothers #margaretdumont
GREAT MOVIES DESCRIBED -------------------------------------------------------------------------- DUCK SOUP (1933) Hi again guys and girls and welcome back to another Great Movies Described post. Today I'm going to be describing the fast, furious and hilarious Duck Soup. "Out of all the Marx Brothers movies I've seen none are quite as perfect as Duck Soup. It perfectly balances the genius and the madness that made their movies great. It's manic, hilarious and iconic." _______________________________________________ #ducksoup #ducksoupmovie #themarxbrothers sbrothers #grouchomarx #classiccomedy #greatmovies #greatmoviesdescribed #moviebuff #filmbuff #movieshot #cinematography #cinematographyanalysis #shotanalysis #movieanalysis #movielover #moviesarelife

"HELLO! I MUST BE GOING!" Groucho Marx, one of the most recognisable of all American comedians, was born on this day in 1890. Groucho and his brothers Chico, Harpo and Zeppo started out on the vaudeville circuit, astounding audiences with their unique and insane brand of zaniness. Revolutionising comedy, they hit the big time moving to Broadway and ultimately Hollywood. DUCK SOUP (1933) is considered one of the greatest film comedies ever made ... and Groucho's one liners both on and off the screen became legendary. In later years he hosted the hit TV game show YOU BET YOUR LIFE. A lady contestant revealed that she had nine children. Astonished, Groucho asked her why she had so many. "Because I love my husband," said the lady. "I love my cigar, too," replied Groucho, "but I take it out of my mouth once in a while!" #grouchomarx #themarxbrothers #chicomarx #harpomarx #zeppomarx #ducksoup #animalcrackers #thecocoanuts #horsefeathers #monkeybusiness #anightattheopera #adayattheraces #margaretdumont #youbetyourlife #oldhollywood #oldhollywoodglam #oldhollywoodglamour #classichollywood #classichollywoodactor #gay #instagay #hollywood #broadway #comedian #legend #cigar #academyawards #innuendo
"Humor is reason gone mad." Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx (2 October 1890 – 19 August 1977) was an American comedian, writer, stage, film, radio, and television star.He was known as a master of quick wit and is widely considered one of America's greatest and most gifted comedians.He made 13 feature films with his siblings the Marx Brothers (Chico,Harpo,Gummo,Zeppo)of whom he was the third-born. He also had a successful solo career, most notably as the host of the radio and television game show You Bet Your Life.His distinctive appearance, carried over from his days in vaudeville, included quirks such as an exaggerated stooped posture, glasses, cigar, and a thick greasepaint mustache and eyebrows. These exaggerated features resulted in the creation of one of the world's most ubiquitous and recognizable novelty disguises, known as Groucho glasses: a one-piece mask consisting of horn-rimmed glasses, large plastic nose, bushy eyebrows and mustache. He was married 3x; had 3 children. (Wik)
Many people ask us who our biggest influencers are in comedy. Well, look at this picture. They are right here. These comedic duos and trios are by far the greatest influence on us. They are sometimes the forgotten heroes and are from a time where comedy was pure comedy. They were all true comedy geniuses who continued to refine and master their craft. They made us and continue to make us belly laugh with the work they left behind. It’s at least our duty to post about them to show appreciation for not only the joy they brought to us growing up and still bring us today but to also honour them by keep their flame lit. There is a generation that might not know who they are and if by doing this post we can show at least one person who they are and the incredible talents they had then this post is worth it. Here’s to the greatest that ever did it. Respect 🙏🏼 The Marx Brothers (top left) Laurel & Hardy (top right) The three stooges (middle right) Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis (bottom left) Abbott & Costello (bottom right) #sooshimango #ourheroes #thegreatest #laurelandhardy #themarxbrothers #deanmartinandjerrylewis #thethreestooges #abbottandcostello
