a little note...

I'm a collector from the old Vestron Video (International) Vhs tapes. I know there's a lot out there, so collecting everything is impossible. But if you have full scans from Vestron films, pictures from films , or something else please send it to me on vestronvideo@hotmail.com. Once I have Enough I will create a site that can be used as a Vestron Video database ( like the U.K. Cannon site - See Link ) Scans/ Pictures provided by others will be mentioned by name/ Link. Thanks in Advance Sincerely Dan

Story : Author: Glenn Andreiev from Huntington, NY wrote :
THE MARX BROTHERS IN A NUTSHELL is prime viewing for a Marx Brothers fan. It does take the expected route of tracing the origins of the Marxes, from their early days in the New York/Coney Island vaudeville circuit almost a hundred years ago, onto Broadway in the 1920's and finally Hollywood. There are great "chapters" on each brother, including the never filmed Gummo. These insightful chapters give facts such as straight man Zeppo was considered the funniest Marx Brother (He's actually hysterical in ANIMAL CRACKERS) Chico had a gambling problem, and Harpo was a loving family man. There are great film clips, including a seldon seen 1931 short they did at Paramount where the Marxes menace a helpless talent scout. The perfect film to see after HORSEFEATHERS or DUCK SOUP.
