Sibling Revelry

SIBLING REVELRY intro from David Cairns on Vimeo.

Extract from one of my Marx Bros pieces, with the kind permission of Arrow Academy. I was very pleased with this opening. Credit to Stephen C. Horne for cutting it together so nicely and for his lovely main title, which you just get a glimpse of before my clunky file-trimming programme hacks it off…

Still haven’t got a name for Manfred, the Marx Bro who was never part of the act. Stiffo doesn’t seem quite in the best taste.

I’ve now watched and read all the other extras on the box set — some fine essays and a great doc there!

More Marxian news soon! Well, I’ll mention it now — I have a little piece in the new Sight & Sound

    If they were Catholic, Limbo.
    That’s my quota of bad taste for the day.

  4. Limbo Marx has a definite ring to it!

  5. Skiddo Marx?

  6. Matthew Davis Says:


  7. Slight modification — Muerto Marx sounds AMAZING.

  8. bensondonald Says:

    Random late mental flash: In “Snow White Meets the Three Stooges”, the Stooges adopt an amnesiac young prince and name him Quarto. And Quarto has a ventriloquist dummy named Quinto. Snow White was so close to getting the next name.

  9. Ha! next question: what would a Marx SISTER have been called?
