Arthur "Harpo" Marx (born Adolph Marx; November 23, 1888 – September 28, 1964) 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 blond wig and was silent in all his movie appearances, instead blowing a horn or whistling to communicate. Marx frequently employed props such as a horn cane, constructed from a lead pipe, tape, and a bulbhorn.

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
