Question:

In which movie Groucho & Harpo dressed alike

by Guest1924  |  earlier

0 LIKES UnLike

Which film is it in which Groucho and Harpo, dressed alike, encounter each other in a doorway which appears to be a mirror? They hilariously mimic each others gestures, each of them supposedly trying to determine if the other is a mirror image.

My 10-year-old daughter has become a fan of the Marx Brothers and is dressing as Groucho for Halloween. I would love to show her this scene if it is available on DVD.

By the way, is it correct that Chico is pronounced CHICK-oh rather than CHEEK-oh? I always pronounced it in the latter fashion, but I have heard he was given the nickname because he was always chasing after CHICKS.

Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    This wonderfully written and executed scene can be found in Duck Soup the political satire that was a dead duck in the days it was released in 1933 and now considered one of the 100 greatest films of all time. Movie was released by Paramount pictures.

    It was a great comedy film and still people use to watch this movie, although it was not good at box office. But movie itself was a master piece. The movie was the last Marx Brothers film to feature Zeppo
    Chico is pronounced Chick-o.

    In fact, it was originally spelled Chicko but a typesetter left the k out of a program and Chico liked it. Most people do pronounce the name as cheek-o. Share more questions with me, if you have any.

    Cheers!
