Harpo Marx

Arthur “Harpo” Marx, born Adolph Marx on November 23, 1888, and passing away on September 28, 1964, was an American comedian, actor, mime artist, and harpist. As the second-oldest of the Marx Brothers, Harpo distinguished himself with a unique comic style that contrasted sharply with the verbal comedy of his brothers Groucho and Chico. His comedic approach drew inspiration from vaudeville, clowning, and pantomime traditions.

In his movie appearances, Harpo’s comic genius was predominantly visual. Characterized by a distinctive curly reddish-blond wig, he remained silent throughout, choosing to communicate through unconventional means such as blowing a horn or whistling. Harpo frequently incorporated props into his acts, notably a horn cane crafted from a lead pipe, tape, and a bulbhorn. His performances showcased a blend of humor, whimsy, and a masterful command of physical comedy, making him an iconic figure in the entertainment industry.
