Most interesting, though is the Marx Brothers portion. Some of my very earliest memories are of Groucho on YOU BET YOUR LIFE and by 1971 I had seen him on talk shows and variety shows and even I DREAM OF JEANNIE. I knew Groucho. I did NOT know he had any brothers. ROOM SERVICE (probably their worst picture as they were shoehorned into a pre-existing play) was perhaps not the best place to meet them.
Especially when the ad promised me FOUR Marxes but ROOM SERVICE features only three as Zeppo was already gone! I was so confused. Looking at the ad now, they even have Zeppo!
Over the next few years, as the aging Groucho rose to become a countercultural cult figure, and inspired by the highly publicized re-release of ANIMAL CRACKERS, I was able to literally catch ALL of the classic Marx Brothers films in big screen re-releases, generally with very appreciative packed audiences.
KING KONG returned to the big screen just five years away, too, in the multi-million dollar reboot mislabeled as "The single most original motion picture event of our time." I didn't catch THAT one 'til TV and I was NOT impressed. I've now seen the original at least half a dozen times. A true classic!
