Memories of the Marx Brothers

Flashback to August 15th, 1932 with The Marx Brothers on the cover of Time Magazine.

Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo had already broken through into movies with "The Coconuts", based upon their second Broadway play after "I'll say she is", but it was a year before their iconic anti-war classic comedy "Duck Soup" which cemented them as one of the most avant guard comedy troupes of all time.

You can see the cover to the right (click for full size) and read the entire article that appeared in the issue right here.
