Marx Brothers: Chico (Leonard, 1887–1961), Harpo (Arthur, 1888–1964), and Groucho (Julius Henry, 1890–1977) First in vaudeville, then on stage, films, radio, and television, the zany antics of Groucho, Harpo, and Chico kept the world in stitches for half a century. Their films include Monkey Business (1931), Horse Feathers (1932), Duck Soup (1933), and A Night at the Opera (1935). Karsh photographed the Marx Brothers in Hollywood as part of a lucrative contract through J. Walter Thompson, then the largest advertising agency in North America. In the mid 1940s, Karsh routinely received $300 for a portrait sitting and about $400 for a set of prints plus travel expenses.
