    1 thought on “Groucho Marx, King of the Jungle

    1. Ron Goulart wrote 6 mysteries in which screenwriter Frank Denby teams with comedian Groucho Marx to play amateur detective and solve murders in 1930-era Hollywood. In “Groucho Marx, King of the Jungle”, Randy Spellman, star of the Ty-Gor (what loincloth-garbed white-guy king of the jungle might they be alluding to?) series of movies has been found dead on the set. His former girlfriend is suspected – but she seems to have vanished. The studio calls the police, but also asks the scriptwrite [...]

    2. I'm a huge Marx Bros fan, and love Groucho's radio and TV work too.I think I've seen all the films several times, have devoured their letters, biographies, scripts, history, and Am bit shocked to say after a couple of short chapters I found I was skimming pages just to follow the plot, as their wasn't much humour in either the situations or dialogue. And that's sad, as humour is more Marx Bros than plot.And so, about 1/3 the way in, I've given up, completely. I wanted this to work and was so ex [...]

    3. Although radio writer and amateur detective Frank Denby promised his expecting wife that he wouldn't get involved in any mysteries until after their child was born, he and Groucho change their plans after discovering the body of the actor who was going to star in a Ty-Gor jungle adventure movie. The revealing of the murderer isn't very surprising, but the book has enough action and laughs to keep things interesting. If you're thinking it's as funny as a Marx brothers movie, you'll be disappointe [...]

    4. Really enjoyed this one, but there was a bittersweet moment when you knew you had reached the end, and knowing there wasn't another book to continue with.
