Fans of classic television will flip over this roundup of more than 50 performances by the comedic trio of Groucho, Harpo and Chico on dozens of TV shows of the 1950s and ’60s (alongside Jack Benny, Dick Cavett, Dinah Shore, Red Skelton, Perry Como, Jackie Gleason, and many others), plus TV commercials and those-were-the-days episodes of Championship Bridge, Celebrity Golf and Celebrity Billiards, and a 40-page book of rare photos from the Marx Brothers family archive, program notes and an essay by a Marx Brothers historian.
