GrouchoHello, and welcome to Brad's Marx Brothers Page. This page is far more popular than I'd ever thought possible. I know so many people who know absolutely nothing about the Marxes. Since starting this page, I have received e-mails from many different people of many different ages and backgrounds. I'm glad to know that the Marx Brothers are still appreciated today.

New!Additions (September 26, 1998):

I have changed the songs in the song section. Also, check the Internet section for a Marx Brothers movie schedule.



The Marx Brothers on the Internet:

Chico: When we first started out, we gotta no idea you give us this grand reception. We don't deserve it. And when I say we don't deserve it, believe me I know what I'm a-talkin' about.
These are some of the best places to go on the internet to find out more about the Marx brothers.

!!!!!A Night at the Opera!!!!!

Groucho: Do you know that America is waiting to hear him sing?
Chico: Well, he can sing loud, but he can't sing that loud.
The lyrics to Lydia, the Tatooed Lady, from At the Circus
The lyrics to Hooray for Captain Spaulding, from Animal Crackers
And, by popular demand:
Lydia, the Tatooed Lady, from At the Circus.
Wanrning: These sound files are all between 1 Meg and 2 Megs. Do not download these if you have a slow connection, unless you have a lot of free time on your hands.

The wit of the Marx Brothers:

Groucho: Say, I used to know a fellow that looked exactly like you by the name of Emanuel Ravelli. Are you his brother?
Chico: I'm Emanuel Ravelli.
Groucho: You're Emanuel Ravelli?
Chico: I'm Emanuel Ravelli.
Groucho: Well, no wonder you look like him. But I still insist there is a resemblance.
Chico: Ha, ha! He thinks I look alike.

Groucho: I wish to announce that a buffet supper will be served in the next room in five minutes. In order to get you in that room quickly, Mrs. Schmalhausen will sing a soprano solo in this room.

Netscape NowThis page is Enhanced for Netscape 2.0 and above. If you want to get a good web browser, meet me tonight under the moon. Oh, I can see you now - you and the moon. You wear a necktie so I'll know you. Have you heard of the battle between Netscape and Microsoft over web browsers? I think Groucho has the only appropriate comment.Sound file available on this topic.

Pictures and text are taken from the books "Why a Duck?" (1971) and "Hooray for Captain Spaulding!" (1974), both edited by Richard J. Anobile. .wav sounds (except advantage.wav) were sampled with my own equipment from the MCA Universal videotape releases of the Paramount Pictures Animal Crackers (1930), Horse Feathers(1932), and Duck Soup (1933), and the MGM Picture A Night at the Opera (1935). The file advantage.wav was sent to me by a Marx Bros. fan. The song, Lydia the Tatooed Lady, was sampled with my own equipment from the MGM Picture At the Circus (1939), as shown on Cinemax.
