Biography | show moreshow less
Adolph Arthur "Harpo" Marx (1888-1964), was known for his pantomime and harp playing in the zany Marx Brothers comedies, in which he also chased blondes and created general mayhem. Ironically, he never truly learned how to play; as a young boy, he developed his own way of "tuning" the instrument. He usually wore a pink (later red) wig, but in the black and white film era, it looked blonde. As the silent participant in the various comedy acts he had a role in, his character was drawn from the silent character archetype of traditional vaudeville acts. In 1961, the "silent Marx brother" published Harpo Speaks, his autobiography.
