WGN used to run old movies at 9 a.m. on weekdays. Unfortunately for me it was also a school day - 6th grade- and I was all set to play sick so I could see the movie.
And then a miracle happened and we had one doozy of a snowstorm. No school !
I have all the Marx Brothers movies, would rather watch one of those than any old horror or war movie. More and more I detest any theatrical violence, historical or otherwise. Oddly, I'm not a fan of the Stooges, Abbott & Costello, Laurel & Hardy or general slapstick. The Marx Brothers were something special and I can't put my finger on it, but nobody else made me laugh as much or for so long.
