Groucho Marx
Helen Traubel
Robert Rounseville

Groucho wanted all his life to play Nanki-poo and in this production he gets his chance and really shines. The rest of the cast is festival quality and worth the trip without him. Traubel was a Metropolitan Opera star best known today as Mrs. Wellanmellon w/ Jerry Lewis. Rounseville was the original Candide for Bernstein and Hoffman in the Michael Powel wonder “THE TALES OF HOFFMAN”. Is it a dark print? Yes, but parts get quite light and easy to see-it’s not perfect . Is it the best I’ve seen of this kinescope in the 30 years I’ve been collecting? Yes. On one dvd. Thanks for looking. John
