This is a pompous pseudo-psychological analysis of Julius "Groucho" Marx, the man and the comedian. Narrator Joe Barrett provides a anchorman's presence in his narration, which makes him a highly appropriate choice for the work. While Barrett's performance is careful, precise, and unadorned, Siegel proves that analyzing madcap humor, or any humor, for that matter, most often kills it. Classic film enthusiasts may enjoy the details of creating such classics as DUCK SOUP and A NIGHT AT THE OPERA. Cursory but interesting insights are provided for the other Marx Brothers, as well, especially Arthur, better known as Harpo. This audiobook provides an unusual, if not enlightening, perspective on Marx as icon and iconoclast. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
