A multi-faceted talent, Chico Marx was the oldest brother and one of the members of ‘Marx Brothers.’ He played the role of an uneducated yet charming con artist who sported a curly-haired wig and wore shabby clothes in the act. Besides, being a performer, he played a prominent role in developing and managing the act in its early years.
Some of his notable works include ‘A Day at The Races,’ ‘Monkey Business,’ ‘Go West,’ ‘Duck Soup,’ ‘Animal Crackers,’ ‘A Night at The Opera,’ ‘The Cocoanuts,’ ‘Horse Feathers,’ ‘A Night in Casablanca,’ ‘The Story of Mankind,’ ‘At the Circus,’ ‘The House That Shadows Built,’ and ‘The Incredible Jewel Robbery.’
‘Love Happy’ was the thirteenth and the final feature film by Marx Brothers, in which Chico played a violin duet and piano.
