Horse Feathers!

Alright, Atlas lightens up. I figured after last week’s killer, it was time for a laugh. And who better than Minnie’s boys. Small bit of film trivia, Groucho played the guitar, but he only displayed this talent in one film, tonight’s feature, ‘Horse Feathers’ (1932). It’s a hoot.

Angel on my Shoulder

View after this, of course. Paul Muni, my favorite actor from that era.

Here Muni stars with Claude Rains, Anne Baxter in Angel…
