Anne Arundel County Public Library will present a new movie series: Marx Brothers Madness. The Enoch Pratt Free Library’s resident Marxologist John Damond, will introduce the Marx Brothers’ films, including movie history, background information and fun facts and tidbits about the brothers.
The film series will feature three Marx Brothers films, two of which are in the top twelve of the American Film Institute’s list of top 100 comedy films. The Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation makes the showing of movies in our 15 library locations possible.
The Marx Brothers included five brothers born to immigrant parents Sam and Minnie Marx with the stage names of Chico, Harpo, Groucho, Gummo and Zeppo; Gummo didn’t appear in any of the 13 feature films.
The series will be presented on Thursdays–July 28, August 11, and August 25 at 6:30pm at the Edgewater Community Library.
