Saturday Night Post, Vol. 3, #34: And The Secret Word Is....

I have no particular thoughts this week.  I can't think of anything to commit to the blogosphere.  I am also in one of my  "No-Hurry-To-Be-Anywhere Moods".

These have been happening a lot lately, but we will soldier on.

As it happens today is the 131st anniversary of the birth of Julius Henry Marx, or Groucho to the rest of us.  I cannot escape the day without a small tribute who made me (and so many others)
laugh so much over the years.

My tribute is not your typical Groucho Marx encounter:  it is in total silence.  No rapid fire puns or insults.  Just blissful silence.

Sometimes silence says more than every word that mankind has ever published. 

 
 
(Thank you for reading and laughing!)

I love Groucho! A true American comedy genius whose work is just as funny today as it ever was!

Love the brothers! There was a cute musical featuring them in the late 1970's on Broadway - not the actual them, but representations... I can't remember the name of it... I have to go look it up. This triggered that memory. It didn't run long, but I remember everyone, at the time, was very excited about it. Funny how one can vaguely remember something... hope all is well. Take care, dear one!

Thank you Debra. His humor is certainly timeless.

Hi Maddie, it's one of my favorites too; and very atypical Groucho.

Hi Dave R. I hope it brought back a good memory.

Thank you Jimmy. It will be a challenge with the forecasted humidity today and tomorrow...but I will survive.

Hi Bob. It certainly is one of the great moments of American film comedy.

Hi Upton. I recall one musical about their lives, Miniie's Boys. There was also "A Day In Hollywood, A Night in The Ukraine." Could you be thinking of one of these productions?

Well, I don't think I had ever seen that, another sign of a misspent youth.

I remember wanting a national day of mourning when Groucho died
I consider him one of the most comical men of the 20th century
