  moronovich: Nice one <Count> ! I have a friend and we always start on an irish pub.With ordering "Two boiled eggs".Just to keep the Marx Brothers tradition alive...the young(er) servants dont know what we are talking about :) But then we tell them and this may be the beginning of a beatiful conversation.
Feb-14-19  Count Wedgemore: <moronovich> I love the Marx Brothers! That scene with the crowded ship's cabin is brilliant, one of the funniest ever.

I like all their films, but "Duck Soup" is my favorite. Many of the scenes were more or less 100% improvised there and then.

  moronovich: Yes <Count> the crowded ships cabin is one of the funniest ever.But I didn´t know they improvised that much,but now you mention it it seems rather transparent.

In an old age Groucho went to a movie in N.Y.The film had started.It was dark.And the he asked all over the cinema:"Is there a doc present?".6 different fingers in the air."Hello Doc!".And off he went.

I am not shure I recognize "Duck Soup" ?

Feb-14-19  Count Wedgemore: <moronovich: I am not shure I recognize "Duck Soup" ?>

It's one of their earlier films, before "Opera" and "Races". If you haven't seen it: YOU MUST!!

I remember reading that several of the scenes in "Duck Soup" were improvised or at least lightly scripted. I don't think they improvised as much in their later films. That phenomenal cabin scene was written by a guy I don't remember the name of, but he was a genius, writing many famous gags for the Marx Brothers and others.

Feb-14-19  Granny O Doul: If you'll excuse the change of topic, I imagine this was a time forfeit. Ray was always a bit prone as I recall.
Feb-14-19  Count Wedgemore: <Granny O Doul> Yes, 38...Rb5, and Black should have excellent chances of holding this endgame with accurate play. But it's clear that White is the only side that can win.
