The Annotated Marx Brothers free pdf Have you ever watched a Marx Brothers film and wondered what 'habeas Irish rose' is? What is the trial of Mary Dugan with sound? What is a college widow?

In this viewer's guide to the Marx Brothers you will find the answer to such mysteries, along with an exhaustive compilation of background information, obscure trivia and even the occasional busted myth. Each of the Marx Brothers' 13 films is covered by a running commentary, with points in the film discussed as they appear.

An introduction for neophytes and a resource for fanatics, this book is a travel guide to the rambling landscape of these remarkable comedies.
