The Marx Brothers Council Podcast

24 “Take a Letter!”

May 14, 2020

This month we are joined by Zeppo expert/loyalist/fangirl/critic/stalker Andrea Orlando for a two-hour examination of the youngest Marx.

Was he the funniest Marx Brother offscreen? Was he even a Marx Brother onscreen? Andrea rips some of Zeppo’s performances, then drools over his ripped shirt in Duck Soup. Matthew adds up his screentime, Noah secretly wonders if this was worth surviving Covid-19 for, while Bob questions how Vanity Fair will react.

Yes, we said two hours. About Zeppo Marx. You have something better to do?

Name checked in this episode: Frank Sinatra, Barbara Stanwyck, Hal Thompson
