My granddaughter learns the finer points of pool under the watchful eyes of the Marx Brothers.


  1. Awww! Have you seen that Person to Person show, where Groucho plays pool with a cat on the table?
    By the way - I don't think I've ever seen that picture of Harpo and Chico on coat-hooks before...

  2. Yes, I have a recording of the Edward R. Morrow interview which includes a visit to Groucho's pool room. I've had that poster of the brothers hanging on the coat rack for a long time--I'm not sure of its origins. It may be hard to tell, but Groucho is hung up too.

  3. Aw, she's precious! :)

    My five year old daughter loves Harold Lloyd, Fred and Ginger, etc., so whenever I get DUCK SOUP in, via Netflix, I'm hoping she'll like the Marx Brothers, too.

    I just recently saw my FIRST Marx Brothers movie...

    Harpo's my favorite. :)


    I like your blog!

    Lots of great stuff for me to learn...

    Thanks for sharing it. :)

  4. Thanks for visiting. Your daughter is lucky to learn about all those great performers.

  5. LOL, this is some form of strange poetic justice. She is precious. ^.^ P.S.: where does that coat rack picture come from? 0.o
