Marx Brothers

Marx Broth|ers, 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).
