ZEPPO MARX. TLS: "Zeppo Marx", ¼p, 7¼x10¼. Hollywood, California, 1934 May 12. On letterhead of the Bren, Orsatti & Marx, Inc. Agency to Mr. H.N. Hardy, Hollywood, California. In full: "I've read your script and we are definitely not interested in a Hollywood or moving picture background. Thank you, however, for submitting it." Herbert "Zeppo" Marx (1901-1979), the youngest of the Marx Brothers, joined the act after brother Gummo's departure. Zeppo, who played the straight man to his brothers, starred in romantic roles with Groucho, Chico and Harpo on Broadway and in their first five films: The Cocoanuts, Animal Crackers, Monkey Business, Horse Feathers and Duck Soup. He left the act in 1933 to pursue other business interests, including running a talent agency. Somewhat of a mechanical whiz, Zeppo invented a wristwatch that would monitor the pulse rate of cardiac patients, and his company, Marman Products, produced clamping devices that were used in the first atomic bomb raids over Japan in 1945. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Light paper clip impression at upper margin. Slightly frayed lower edge. Overall, fine condition.
