"...but there were some very gifted comedians..."

          LH - I can remember being 16 years old and seeing the Marx Brothers movie, "The Night of the Opera," for the first time.
I'd never laughed so hard in my life. I laughed so hard my chest hurt, my whole body hurt.

          Maybe the funiest thing was, all through the movie, Harpo was sneaking along in the orchestra area, doing something with the music--nobody knew what he was doing--then, at just the right moment, everybody turned the page on the musical score, and they started playing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame."

          I watched the same movie again, years later, and it didn't seem funny at all.

          I think there's something really magical about comedy.
