Arthur Marx (born Adolph Marx; November 23, 1888 – September 28, 1964), known professionally as Harpo Marx, was an American comedian, actor, mime artist, and musician, and the second-oldest of the Marx Brothers. In contrast to the mainly verbal comedy of his brothers Groucho Marx and Chico Marx, Harpo's comic style was visual, being an example of both clown and pantomime traditions. He wore a curly reddish blonde wig, and never spoke during performances (he blew a horn or whistled to communicate). He frequently used props such as a horn cane, made up of a lead pipe, tape, and a bulbhorn, and he played the harp in most of his films.

I wonder if anyone noticed it was Chico who spoke to Harpo in their movies, not Groucho.

Harpo was the angel of the Marx Brothers. Each time he played his harp, he was practicing for the time when he would depart this world and would play upstairs where he is now. He was special.

I am 15 years old. I first fell in love with Harpo when I saw him on I Love Lucy, doing the mirror scene from Duck Soup. I`ve never seen another like him and I doubt I ever will.

He made you laugh and he made you cry. To think his harp playing was all self taught
