Movie Reviews

Just OK

"Let's face it; if you're a fan of this genius, you could see scratchy 8mm silent home movies of the back of his head and be entertained & fulfilled. However, this DVD is simply a recording of three shows made in the early 60s (the show originally started in the 50s) so it was near the end of it all and was probably Groucho at his best (older & slower in years, but still quick-witted and sharp as a fish knife).I was disappointed that this DVD wasn't clever extracts from that whole decade that the show ran; instead it was simply three recordings, albeit classic ones. Even the commercial breaks were missing (which would have been kewl to leave in to add to the whole 60s ambiance).Fans expecting the famous 'cigar' quip ("...but Groucho I love my wife..." to which he replied "...I love my cigar, but I take it out once in a while...") will be disappointed. It ain't here, guyz."
Groucho: Comic Genuis

"Some of the funniest things Groucho ever said were not all on the silver screen. This collection of some of Groucho's best shows as host of "You Bet Your Life" are priceless. I watch them over and over again so I can feel how it is to laugh at humor and not bodily functions made in poor taste like comedy tends to be now. Worth every penny and not easy to find in a regular video store."
Here he is: the one, the only... ˇˇGROUCHO!!

"Four "You Bet Your Life" shows with Groucho in one of the two highlights of his career (the other one was the movies). What can I say? Groucho was a genius and in this edition there is pure Groucho. Except one sentence ("Duckie, drop your eggs on Fenneman") there is no classic moment in the four programs which are recorded on the DVD (they seem to have been selected randomly) but it has not importance: Groucho is great anyway. So, for Marx Bros. aficionados this item is pure delight. The image quality is not very good, but this is a minor fault:
these are a very old TV shows, and the existing prints must be very used. A joy."
