Listen: Marx, Chase Chase, Chevy discussed on Unspooled
"Hello and welcome to on spoiled, Paul share. This is the podcast where we are watching a film from the top one hundred list every single week and looking at if it still holds up if it's still enjoyable does. It say something isn't worth your time. And this week we got a real classic on our hands. Mr Smith goes to Washington. Corrupt. Totally. That's not true. And before we get into that though, we want to go back to last episode where we talked about the classic Marx brothers film. Duck soup where we had Conan O'Brien sit and talk to us a little bit about his feelings about the Marx brothers. And we had so many great pieces of feedback though. Number one piece of feedback that we got Amy you, and I both we got hammered with it. I'm just going to give this credit to Mark t cantor who basically just taught us a lesson about how you pronounce chick. Oh marks. It's not Chico. It's chick. Oh. And it was chick. Oh because chick oh got a lot of chicks. You know, there are many theories as to why he was named that. But if it is pronounced check. Oh that does make me believe the chick one anymore. But is the shoe store called Csikos Chico's? I mean, how let us know. I know. No. Maybe this Csikos like, hey chick. Check out those shoes. But that was something that I am embarrassed. I did not ever think about. So. Thank you for that correction for many of you not just Markelle Thomas Kanter what else you got Amy Kevin Joseph who's at Kevin Joseph C, M X. He thought of another film. I loved the point that you made a duck soup about how it was so many different comedy styles. All the Marx brothers together. And he was like, you know, Caddyshack kinda worked that Dangerfield chase Bill Murray. And laid it should not work the way that it works together. Those people are offering on totally different five. Yeah. It does work and Caddyshack is a very Marx brothers type of film. If you think about it like that plot is like Dangerfield is like Groucho coming into this high society place. The only difference is like, you know, who's Chevy Chase maybe Chevy. Chase Bill Murray is kind of like Harpo. By that. Harpo, boomer. Yeah. That I could do that. I can I mean that's a totally who Chico Chico. I guess I you did it again. Oh, damn who check chick OBI. Jacoby Chico is the hard one on that one. I mean, I guess I mean, he wouldn't be tonight. Because tonight would be Margaret Dumont. Maybe I should go would be Chevy Chase Chevy. Chevy. Chase Chase was was. handsome and Zappa. Would be would be Danny. I Bob Gasol writes that I couldn't have been more wrong when it came to the writers of the film. I kind of this is that the Marx brothers. I assume they did all the writing than I when I saw writers. I was surprised and I thought maybe they just carried over suffering the vaudeville days, but Bob says no I hand full of gags were carried over from vaudeville, but their best plays and movies used top notch writers, which is such a unique thing to think of these very disparate personalities, these strong comedic performers who didn't do their own writing Caddyshack. Actually, it was Doug Kenney herald Ramos who also directed it. And I believe Brian Doyle Murray all have writing credits on that movie. That movie is a mess of film, those kind of being rewritten on the fly very much like they got great personalities, and then through the grace of God that movie kind of clicked and worked, but at the time it came. Came out of Kenney. One of the writers actually committed suicide because the movie was kind of flop when it was first released an after like all the acclaim of animal house.."
