Book summary

From dust jacket notes: "Here it is: The funniest scenes from the funniest of all Marx Brothers films, recreated for you by means of more than 800 frame blow-up photos taken directly from Animal Crackers. Of all the characters created by Groucho Marx, none is more famous than his African explorer, Captain Jeffrey T. Spaulding. The 1930 film, Animal Crackers, gave Groucho his lifetime trademark, 'Hooray for Capt.

Anobile, the edition of the previous bestseller of Marxian wit, Why a Duck?..." [via]
