Dirty Blonde and Broadway Mom: Mae West and Minnie Marx

Learn more about the "dirty blonde" and Broadway mom who worked alongside the Marx Brothers. (This Bonus Features guide accompanies our virtual tour The Marx Brothers and Chicago.)


During our virtual tour The Marx Brothers and Chicago, we briefly cited two women who worked alongside the Marx Brothers comedy team:

  1. Mae West was an actress who made movies at the same time as the Marx Brothers.

  2. Minnie Marx was a harpist and the matriarch of the Marx family; she served as the Marx Brothers' manager until her death in 1929.

Learn more about these women through a 2020 documentary and a failed Broadway production.
