EBOOK (Groucho Harpo Chico and Sometimes Zeppo a Celebration of the Marx Brothers) Ç Joe Adamson

This same review appears on The man who wrote this book is an unfunny man who thinks his writing is rather funny He must also think that he is credible if he doesn t laud the team but launches an attack he writes poorly on the Marx Brothers He seems to think that by pointing out their flaws he must be comedically superior to them He seems to think that by pointing out their flaws he must be comedically superior to them book is supposed to be factual and informative This man has done some research but writes of his personal feelings Adamson knows very little of Chico and in my opinion he writes him off as part of the comedy team There is an incredible amount of nit picking in this book and in the case of Chico Adamson has to prove that the line It s better to have loft and lost than to never have loft at all is a poor pun He looks over the bigger picture which includes in this scene a crazy man yelling and throwing things from a hay loft and that Chico is very reluctant to et any nearer to this uy At this point Chico s eager to employ any excuse to leave and he actually delivers the line superbly Most unforgivable is Adamson s failure to recognize I m Daffy Over You as an original composition of Chico s first appearing in Animal Crackers He associates Chico with Sugar In the Morning That song was published in 1957 and was written by men who weren t even alive when Chico first played his piece I wouldn t be and was written by men who weren t even alive when Chico first played his piece I wouldn t be if he pronounced Chico s name Cheeko instead of Chick o In an attempt at humor Adamson explains that logic is illogical Anything that is a certainty will only be contradicted by another certainty and that his statement isn t a certainty or it would contradict itself I think that deserves a nomination for the most idiotic and inane string of words in the English language What a pointless half a page And there are plenty of these He includes at the beginning of the book a uote about how people who write about comedy are rarely funny His statement holds true so thanks for providing the insult Adamson His work is by no means a Celebration of the Marx Brothers or a comprehensive uide to their works It comes across as a diary entry rather than a product of research though he does provide some ood information here and there It has probably as many facts as either Groucho s or Harpo s authobiography and I don t have to tell you if Adamson s book or one of the Marx Brothers is better but I don t see anyone searching libraries for information on the life or comedic career of Joe Adamson Brilliant The Marx Brothers book a Marx Brother could have written if he d wanted to be honest An assessment of their work and their lives told inte.

Lligently and with amazing humor The funniest non fiction book I ve ever read and one I can re read regularly and often do I wish I d written it but then I never would have had the chance to read it This book it but then I never would have had the chance to read it This book written in 1973 a year after my birth and it remains surprisingly young and entertaining Adamson is a Marx Brothers fan but one who does not hesitate to point out their artistic flaws their failures and also their shortenings as human beings all this in an affectionate humorous tone The as human beings all this in an affectionate humorous tone The photos included in the book also help These days it s hard to find a biography that The Cheating Curve gives detailed information and at the same time remains readable amusing and entertaining and can be easily read even if you re not a fan Adamson s book is one of those complete with a large section of notes Areat introduction to the Brothers I tracked this book down after reading a recommendation for it on the DorothyL mystery writers listserv It s an excellent nutty study of the Marx Brothers phenomenon with a style all its own packed full of studio anecdotes and details on everything from rehearsals to writing to filming If you re a writer interested in humor or working in humor do yourself a favor and find a copy I don t think I ve ever had fun with a Hollywood book Adamson s sharp wit serves his subjects well There have been a lot of Marx Brothers books written since this one but I can t imagine any of them being any better or written with such personality I When the Snow Falls grew up with this book and have read it countless times Like Oscar Wilde the Marx Brothers it could be argued never produced anything as interesting as they were Oscar Wilde fans might disagree with me on that point Sadly there are many who not knowing better euate the Marx Brothers with some of the least inventive and puerile slapstick which the 1940s dredged up This book successfully challenges and dispels this misunderstandingIt is an extraordinary ride through theatre and film history and filled to the brim with hysterical stories In addition to being exceptionally funny it is also extremely well researched even the end notes are both comprehensive and entertaining Filled with photographs and excerpts from their films it is at times almost a laugh a line And it is fascinating to read about how the Marx Brothers movies actually came about And some of the stories are even believable Adamson s book is a magnificent example of how to write wittily and well while constantly keeping the reader s attentionThe effect of uotingreat writers throughout history for the various sections of the book is to point out.
