Arthur Marx�s Groucho offers never before seen images of his legendary family and the Hollywood scene of the 20th century. Recently discovered, never before seen candid photographs taken by Arthur Marx are at the heart of the Marx Family journey through vaudeville, Broadway, film, radio and television. Here are intimate, poignant and hilarious images of Groucho Marx, the family man, and Groucho Marx, the artist, backstage with brothers Harpo and Chico on the MGM lot. A portrait of Groucho at home in the Twenties through the Seventies emerges before a backdrop of Hollywood icons including Marilyn Monroe, Billy Wilder and Jack Lemmon shooting "Some Like It Hot," Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Jimmy Durante, Red Skelton, Dorothy Lamour, Carmen Miranda, Laurel & Hardy, Jayne Mansfield, Frank Sinatra, Mickey Rooney, Audrey Hepburn, Danny Kaye, Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, James Cagney, Carole Lombard and, of course, the Marx Brothers.
