Marx Brothers, the

Marx Brothers, the
a US family of actors known for their crazy humour and jokes. Together, they made many humorous films, which are still very popular. The most important members of the family were Groucho (1890-1977), Harpo (1888-1964), who never spoke and played the harp, and Chico (1886-1961), who played the piano. Groucho, who was the most famous, had glasses, a large moustache, and a strange way of walking, and he always carried a thick cigar. The Marx Brothers' films include Horse Feathers (1932), Duck Soup (1933), and A Night at the Opera (1935).
