I read Harpo Speaks recently. Harpo Marx was a close friend of Alexander Woollcott on whom the Whiteside character is based.
Alexander Woollcott and Harpo Marx: A Love Story. THANK YOU for sharing this gem.
He looked like something that had gotten loose from Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. ~ Harpo Marx about Alexander Woollcott
I had drinks with some newly engaged friends of mine last night at The Algonquin Hotel on West 44th. It was a lot of fun discussing the famed Algonquin Round Table. When asked why Harpo Marx was a member of the most famous literary circle of the 20th century,I replied, "Well, some of the famous musicians of the era also made the table their home, like the Gershwin brothers, Ira and George." Always fun to recite puns made by Robert Benchley and Alexander Woollcott. If you want a real laugh, go to YT and see Benchley appear in the 1929 film(let) "The Stock Report."
