BrickHeadz - Harpo and Groucho Marx


The genial Marx Brothers don't need any introduction - even to younger generations, I believe.

They are responsible for some of the most hilarious moments ever in comedy cinema - making us still laugh more than 70 years after! Films like "Monkey Business" (1931), "Horse Feathers" (1932), "A Night at the Opera" (1935) or "A Day at the Races" (1937), to name but a few, are timeless masterpieces and a source of inspiration for many, many comedies even in the present days.

The Marx brothers were five in total: Chico, Groucho, Gummo, Harpo and Zeppo, but the main performers in cinema were Chico, Harpo and Groucho.

Harpo's silent gags (he never spoke a word in films, communicating by whistling or via an air horn), along with his virtuoso harp performances; the incredible piano solos by pseudo-Italian-speaker Chico; and Groucho's unforgettable satyric sentences and mottoes - all make the delights of both older and younger people.

This is my BrickHeadz-style humble tribute to Harpo and Groucho Marx, my favourite pair of the group. Maybe in the future I shall add a Chico character...

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a suitable way to reproduce Groucho's glasses (which had a very thin frame), so I opted to leave them out. Or rather, I suspect that he had forgotten them at home the day he was posing for the model!
