Title: Zeppo Marks Brothers
The Marx Brothers were a highly successful and hilarious comedy team from the early days of film. Originally started as a vaudeville act, there were five brothers, never all part of the act together. The original four were known by the stage names Groucho, Harpo, Gummo, and Chico. Gummo, unlike the others, did not enjoy being onstage, and quit, to be replaced by the youngest of the five, known as Zeppo. When talking films came along, their popularity took off, and they released a succession of well-received and profitable films, starting with a filmed version of their stage play, The Cocoanuts (1929) and reaching their peak with A Night At The Opera(1935) and A Day At The Races(1937). Groucho is one of the more recognizable characters of American film, and went on to host a classic game/quiz show throughout the 1950s called, You Bet Your Life.
