The Marx Brothers. Top to bottom: Groucho, Chico, Harpo and friend Lou Levy. The Marx Brothers were a team of sibling comedians, who performed in vaudeville, stage plays, film and television. The Marx Brothers, born in New York City, were the sons of Jewish German immigrants. On January 16, 1977, The Marx Brothers were inducted into the Motion Picture Hall of Fame.
Because Harpo couldn't compete with the comedic wits of his brothers, his lines were taken away from him. Though insulted at first, he soon became a gifted mime, particularly in his use of facial expressions and a honking horn.
