Descrizione prodotto


(Applause Books). Bill Marx is the last living person to have worked professionally with the three Marx Brothers, his uncles Chico and Groucho and his father, Harpo Marx. Because Chico and Groucho had siblings that had written about them, Bill Marx wanted to complete the Marx Brothers' literary trifecta by authoring a book about the personal and professional relationships that he had with his father. Son of Harpo Speaks! , in addition to offering a unique perspective of a very special man and revealing many stories never before in print, is also a book about a "too-Hollywood-to-believe" life-altering quirk of fate that ultimately brought him together with his parents. The background for this remarkable revelation unfolded unassumingly over a glass of wine and some conversation in the famous 1960s nightclub, Dino's Lodge, on Hollywood's Sunset Strip. It would subsequently lead the author to explore the complex life task of dealing with his emotional scars of rejection and the secure feelings of acceptance, the latter due to his overwhelmingly good fortune of having been adopted by two loving parents. Plenty of "show-biz" and "sizzle" are also sprinkled throughout to make for a very enjoyable read.

4.0 su 5 stelle Bill Marx stands on his own! 21 febbraio 2013
Di R. Glueck - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I have a rather large library of books concerning the Marx Brothers and consider myself to be as well versed as anyone with regard to the lives of the principle three actors, Harpo, Chico, and Groucho. I originally purchased "SoHS" with hope of further insight to the lives of Gummo and Zeppo. I got that, but only a minor spoonful of what I really wanted to know. Instead I got a healthy serving of how Harpo and his beloved Susan lived, worked, and raised their four kids. You'd think that was enough, but it isn't. Harpo's oldest son has plowed forth in life, full of naievity that required a sore education in the school of hard knocks. Gifted and intelligent, Bill Marx narrates his education as a Marx child, a celebrity's son, a man forced into growing up with some burdens similar to our own, and some unique. I found amazing parallels to my own life in his writing until I realized, they aren't so amazing! On the other hand, through a remarkable series of coincidences, Bill learns about his ancestry, who his birth mother was, why he was put up for adoption, and why he is still loved by his late parents; all of them.

There is a stream of consciousness Marx Brothers movie included in the end of the text, and I could have done without it, but for whatever reason it is there. Some of Bill's stories are so funny that I literally burst out laughing and woke up my wife in doing so. The goldfish in the clinic being one.

I the end, I have to say, I wish I knew Billy Marx more intimately as a friend, a buddy, a pal. I still have questions about Uncles Gummo and Zeppo, but I know Bill very well, just as he knows me. And we haven't yet met in person.

If you are a confirmed Marxist, and frankly, you won't be reading this unless you are, this is a necessary component of your library. Harpo would give it five honks, I gave it four. You should honk it yourself.

As a big Marx Bros fan I have a collection of all movies and most books.
I was happy to have the opportunity to purchase this latest addition for my library.
Would like to have discovered more "untold stories" of the Marx Bros
and there are a few new ones in here. Suppose most have been covered before in previous books.
Bill Marx does a competent job with the Autbiogrpahy and is very grounded and honest.

4.0 su 5 stelle More concerning Bill than Harpo 24 gennaio 2016
Di Dennis M. Davis - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book was more like Billy Speaks. I read Harpo Speaks many years ago and still have my copy which I loved!! This is more about Bill Marx than Harpo even though Bill was a Marx. It's more his story than more about his father, which he loved very much and I don't blame him since a lot of people loved Harpo. Very interesting story from Bill and his life, I really liked it a lot.

Many thanks to Bill Marx for sharing a first hand accounting of life with this wonderfully talented comic king! As the first son of Harpo, he shares heartwarming behind the scenes tales of how deeply mature and at the same time open and fun his Dad was to be around. Excellent!

Not the book to read for a lot of information on his dad, Harpo Marx. However if you read Harpo Speaks this is a great companion that expands on the family story through the eyes of the eldest son. I really enjoyed it and his class and humor.
