Editorial Reviews

Review

“Coniam has done a remarkable service for viewers of Marx Brothers films with this collection of answers to comedy ponderables...highly recommended”―Choice; “it’s gold to a real Marx Brothers fan”―Communication Booknotes Quarterly; “very interesting, entertaining, and enlightening...impressive...the quintessential look at the comedy team’s films...indispensible”―Examiner; “it might have been thought that there was nothing new to add to the legions of books on the Marx brothers, and then along comes this worthy and funny book...invaluable for the modern audience for the Marx Brothers...highly recommended”―Destructive Music; “an invaluable guide to some of the most surrealistic comedies ever produced in Hollywood”―Crime Time; “I’ve been hoping that someone would write a book like this. Now, when somebody doesn’t get Groucho’s joke about the Irish chiropodist in Animal Crackers. I don’t have to explain it. I can just point to this book!”―Randy Skretvedt, author of Laurel and Hardy: The Magic Behind the Movies.
