Are The Marx Brothers Still Funny?

The first comedic break-outs of the talkies liked to talk a lot. A whole lot. Do their witty wordplay and manic gags hold up? A recent Blu-Ray package of the legendary comic troupe’s first five films contains some answers. FULL STORY

In my book they will always be funny! From looking at the pictures, I am some how amazed at how young and smooth faced they where. I also remember Watching Groucho on his TV quiz show, "You Bet Your Life", I must have been maybe 9 years old (1955?). They had a "duck" drop down, some times on the contestants head, can't remember if the "duck" came down for a wrong or right answer though? And of course Groucho always had a huge cigar.

Addressing each icon one at a time on their funny standings, "Yes!" "Yes!" "Yes!" & to Harpo, a "Honk!" :D
