    I saw that on the schedule, but I flipped a coin (mentally) and chose Capote on FLIX. 3/4 the way through right now, and kinda wish I had gone with Duck Soup......

    The Marx Brothers are my apex comedy group from the slapstick era

    I would watch it down at the club, but I'd never join a club that would have me as a member.

    When he grabs that bagel or donut at the one table and dunks it in the coffee at the other...absolutely brilliant.

    I remember years ago that a local theater showed a double feature of first Horsefeathers & DS. It began with a couple of old Looney Tunes cartoons. I have to admit that it was probably the most enjoyable time I have ever spent at the movies.

    Had it on in the background while I was on the phone dealing with credit card fraud. :mad: Seemed appropriate.

    He was playing an L-5 I think.

    Yup, but tosses a different guitar!

    Love the Marx Bros. too. Just one thing, was it 'Duck Soup' where Groucho throws a perfectly good archtop into a lake while serenading a chick from a canoe? Traumatized me in childhood. Still have night terrors
