7. Four of the Three Musketeers: The Marx Brothers on Stage
by Robert S. Bader
A detailed history that brings to light the part of the Marx Brothers’ career we know the least about: the hardscrabble early years honing their act in front of live audiences in vaudeville and on Broadway, and how they developed their well-known characters and routines before their arrival in Hollywood. The book covers their professional journey from Groucho’s debut in 1905 to their final live performances of scenes from A Night in Casablanca in 1945.
