Gwen: It took the Marx Brothers years to find each other.
As most everyone knows, the Marx Brothers were a vaudeville comedy team who went on to find major success in the movie business. There were originally five brothers, with Gummo leaving the act in 1924 before any films were made. Zeppo left the business in 1933. Groucho, Harpo and Chico continued to make movies until 1949. Groucho became the host of a very popular TV quiz show in the 1950s called You Bet Your Life. Some of the Marx Brothers best known films are The Cocoanuts (1929), Animal Crackers (1930), Duck Soup (1933), A Night at the Opera (1935), A Day at the Races (1937) and Room Service (1938).
