Film: "The Cocoanuts" (1929), the Marx Brothers first film.

Harpo Marx, an early "deviant artist", pantomime comedian, and practical joker. This is a callage of my favourite facial expressions from that film, he's got such a boyish charm about him, even when pretending to fight he still looks very innocent. Photos can't express his lovable personality, poised gestures or his wacky enthusiasm, so often people don't see anything special about him until they finally witness him in a Marx Brothers film. Anyway, some of the quotes are from his autobio, some are ones that he mimed in scenes, and the rest I made-up.

All screencaps are mine, except the two in the lower-right, and the harp pic (from "Why A Duck?" [link]).

I recently re-uploaded this so that other people can use it, (it used to be just a screenshot).

Oh I love Harpo! His heart showed through the movies, I mean, he was just so sweet! A very well constructed collage, also! Sorry, my love of Harpo superimposed itself over my appreciation of your fine work...
