JLAB | Giraffes on Horseback Salad (Online Event)
The Marx Brothers, Salvador Dali,
and The Strangest Movie Never Made
Author Josh Frank shares the surreal, zany and true story of the movie Salvador Dali wanted to make with The Marx Brothers . Written in 1937, the screenplay for this absurdist love story, featuring Harpo Marx as a Spanish aristocrat, was lost until 1996 when it was discovered among Dali’s personal papers.
