The Annotated Marx Brothers

Thanks to all of you who have written to ask why the annotated guides have disappeared from the site... as most of you guessed it's because they are about to turn into a book.
"The Annotated Marx Brothers" will be published by McFarland next year.
As well as the last three films I never got around to doing here, I promise the book will contain loads and loads of stuff that was never seen online: each entry is massively expanded with new information, and there is an all-new accompanying commentary for each film.
Thanks so much for all the interest, and I hope you like the book.
I've nearly finished it, so I'll be back here soon with more online stuff...

Your annotated guides are brilliant and give plenty of information that I've never known before. I hope that the book turns out successful. I'll be sure to read it when it comes out.

Well done Matthew! Superb, can't wait to read it, hoping for Mendel Picasso to be solved!

Thanks, but that hope will be disappointed, I'm afraid!

Congratulations, I had wondered why all your blogs had fallen silent. Now I know why. I hope to see a copy out in Australia.

Hello - I'm gonna buy your book. :)

I just stumbled on this blog about Mendel Picasso that isn't definitively conclusive but suggests some possible answers to the question of the meaning.

Pablo -
Thanks - hope you enjoy it!
That blog post is by David A. Cory, and will feature as an appendix to the book!

No worries. I bought it through The Book Depository. I realise it won't be out until next January, but I'm looking forward to reading it. :)

In 1911 Pablo Picasso painted an analytical cubist portrait of Buffalo Bill.
