Screw the drunken crowds on New Years Eve...stay home where it's warm and safe and watch the Marx Brothers Marathon on TCM! It starts at 8:15pm (5:15 for us Left Coasters) with Duck Soup, followed by Horse Feathers, Monkey Business, A Night At The Opera, A Day At The Races, A Night In Casablanca and At The Circus. Yes, I own all these movies on DVD and they're on the shelf right over there and I can watch them anytime I want. But a Marx Bros. Marathon on TV is a holiday tradition near and dear to my cynical, hard, little heart. It carries me back to 1968 or so, when I first discovered them, with Duck Soup and A Night At The Opera on one of the New York City TV stations (I think it was WNEW, at the time). So raise your glass to Auld Lang Syne with Groucho, Harpo, Chico and sometimes Zeppo (at least 50% of the time tonight). Since those three strange words translate, roughly, to "days of long ago," can you think of a more perfect way to spend the evening?
