5.0 su 5 stelle A fun afternoon's read 23 febbraio 2010
Di J. D. Christensen - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Send this book to a friend who needs a cheer up - or read it yourself for a laugh.

BTW, best essay in the book has to do with 'income tax.' If you've been taxed enough already,you may find it comforting to know that Groucho would feel your pain. Fun book.

3.0 su 5 stelle Know what you're getting 12 agosto 2009
Di James D. Crabtree - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
An interesting book, but it really doesn't do Groucho justice, in my opinion. The author has picked scenes Groucho acted in, letters he wrote, segments from radio shows, articles he authored, etc. but the book fails to make the reader feel a need to find more (and more is out there). A more thought-out collection would have made you want to find more material of the kind laid out in the chapters of this book, but for some reason I felt the book just didn't do that. If you want to read some of Groucho's letters, get a book that covers that. If you want to read the radio scripts with Chico and Groucho, there's a book on that as well. But this book in and of itself carries very little of note.

This gift was a duplicate, and therefor a total waste of money. I don't know if returns are possible, and I can't seem to find any information about them. Definitely something to keep in mind when shopping

4.0 su 5 stelle A good selection, which will make you want to watch the movies again. 15 marzo 2008
Di David M. Giltinan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This is a fine selection. There's a brief introduction by Groucho's biographer, Stefan Kanfer, a couple of Time magazine articles about Groucho, then the rest of the material is by the man himself. A kind of "greatest hits" volume. So you know it's guaranteed to be funny. It includes favorite scenes from "Animal Crackers", "Monkey Business", "Horse Feathers", "Duck Soup", "A Night at the Opera", and "A Day at the Races", among other films. There are some freelance articles, as well as selected material culled from his appearances on radio and TV.

All of this is reliably funny stuff, but for my money the best part of this book was "The Groucho Letters", roughly 30 pages of correspondence. There's the surreal correspondence between Groucho and Warner Brothers, who were trying to claim exclusive rights to the name 'Casablanca'. Letters to Fred Allen, Russell Baker, Alistair Cooke, and others. But the oddly moving center to the whole collection is an exchange of letters between Groucho and T.S. Eliot, initiated when Eliot, who was an avid fan, wrote in 1961, requesting an autographed photo.

Anyone troubled by the anti-Jewish sentiments in some of Eliot's writing should read these letters, which go a long way to softening the image of Eliot as a rabid anti-Semite. The two men obviously grew friendly, and held each other in high regard, as this excerpt from a letter from Groucho to Russell Baker shows:

(January 21, 1965)

I was saddened by the death of T.S. Eliot. My wife and I had dinner at his home a few months ago and I realized then that he was not long for this world. He was a nice man, the best epitaph any man can have ....

I recommend the book, though you may prefer to watch the films again.
