FILM DESCRIPTION: In this 1933 Marx Brothers film, the mythical country of Freedonia is broke and on the verge of revolution. Mrs. Teasdale (Margaret Dumont), Freedonia's principal benefactress, will lend the country 20 million dollars if the president withdraws and places the government in the hands of the "fearless, progressive" Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx). At his inauguration, Firefly shows up late, insults everyone in sight, and sings a song about how he intends to abuse his power. Naturally, the crowd cheers wildly. Meanwhile, Ambassador Trentino (Louis Calhern) of neighboring Sylvania schemes to oust Firefly and take over Freedonia himself. To gather enough evidence to discredit Firefly, he sends his most trusted spies, Chicolini (Chico Marx) and Pinky (Harpo Marx). Five minutes after they show up in Freedonia, both spies become important members of Firefly's cabinet, though Chicolini keeps his day job as a peanut vendor. Firefly eventually declares war on Sylvania, an absurd farrago with Firefly changing uniforms from scene to scene, Chicolini going to the other side because the food is better, and Pinky parading around the battlefield with a sandwich board reading "Join the army and see the navy."

All in one take, it appears.  More than impressive!  I'd love to here the sound (instructions/cues?) involved, if any.  This is a brilliant sequence!  I wonder how long they rehearsed for this.

Ah, I saw this when I was 6 and thought the movie was hilarious. But my friend built this scene up to be by far the funniest scene in the movie, and at the time, it was too much hype. I wasn't impressed.

Don't you hate it when you accidentally break a mirror and then somebody just like you copies your every move spot on to the point you can't tell if it's a mirror or not.

I don't know how that was possible to have two identical people, but I can tell you, I think someone could do a similar gag to this on Deviantart through comic strips.
The moment where they switch places (twice, none the less!) is one of the best jokes in the history of comedy
To think people used to split their guts laughing at this...and SOBER! I must admit it IS comedic genius and one of the most classic comedy scenes in history, up there with "Who's on First?"

Also repeated by the Three Stooges [Moe, Larry & Curly] in one of their shorts. The one where they battle some "Wolfman" or "Werewolf" in a hotel.

So we've got three Marx brothers in the same scene all doing Groucho. Oddly enough Zeppo also played Groucho once when his brother was too sick (flu I think) to film his scene that day. That according to an interview he did with Dick Cavett. Sorry, don't recall which movie. Can anybody help us out?
TheRagingNerd (1 year ago)
I like how Groucho wasn't sure until Chico shows up at the end!

When they have that greasepaint on and look just like Groucho, that's how you know they all looked alike

+Les Toil That joke was not obvious don't kid yourself. You were being serious.
Les Toil (1 year ago)
I was being mentally lazy. And it was such an obvious joke! I do grit my teeth in anger when I see things that are blatantly wrong--like Christopher Reeve's hair barely moving as he flies through the skies at the speed of sound. LOL!
65Britishbulldog (1 year ago)
+Les Toil lol. that's cool you got it. it's ok. I actually watched it more than once myself to see what was going on. I'm glad you figured it out. If it makes you feel any better I get very confused with the Back to the Future movies and Star Wars. lol.
Les Toil (1 year ago)
OK. I'm a dim-wit. I admit it. I looked at it again. The whole point of that gag was "Ya thought I was going to put the black hat on my head--but I fooled you!!".

Ah yes.  I remember it now.  It was 1542, because that was the year I won my first US Open golf championship.  lol

+Ima SuperPerson I remember that gag - love that one! The year was actually 1542 not 1543.

No, somebody did this in their mirror in 1543.

No, Max Shuler did it before this in 1921.

Frank Farmer (3 years ago)
That's pretty damn close to what Lucille Ball did with Harpo in the 60s.  Their act was better, especially when Harpo's hat bounced and hers didn't.  I love that episode.  I have it on DVD (well, all of the episodes) but that's my favorite one.

Alan Mann (3 years ago)
Can't tell if you're genuinely confused... but yeah he obviously didn't spin with other guy.  Of course, when your back is facing the mirror, you can't see it anyway, so the other guy doesn't bother with the spin since the spin would go unnoticed.  Nice little detail they put in. 
SteevDragon67 (3 years ago)
Yeah, Groucho spins around, but his "reflection" (Harpo) doesn't, yet Groucho doesn't notice! Classic!

Yet ANOTHER "Back to the Future" reference in this thread.
When I was a kid, I'd seen the Stooges quite a few times, and I liked them a lot. My parents always told me about the Marx Brothers and their brand of humor, which I didn't get a chance to see until my late teens. But when I finally saw them, in one of their films I don't know the name of (I remember it involved them being on a boat and stuffing as many people as they could into a single room), I lost it. Tears down my eyes, red in the face, stomach hurting, the works. Now, and this might sound rude or mean or some such, I've RE-seen Stooges... and... it just doesn't do it. I've lost my taste for slapstick over the years... but the Marx Brothers are still downright hilarious!! That... and they made me wanna learn to play a harp.

I love both troupes, but I like to think that the Stooges are to AC-DC as the Marx Bros are to Genesis.
Fred Bernardin (4 months ago)
One of the reasons that the "stateroom scene" as well as other routines works so well is that the Marx Brothers actually refined it in front of a live audience. So by the time they filmed it, they knew which parts were funny, and exactly how to cadence the scene for maximum effect.

My father said that all the old comedians- the Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, etc each were the pioneers of the various comedy styles.  The guys we have today are merely subscribers.  To him, the Marx Bros. were the masters of satire.  Would you agree?
