    Description

    Cocoanuts (Paramount, 1929). Autographed Still (8" X 10"). Shelby Chapman was the sound mixer on the Marx Brothers' first film for Paramount, shot at their Long Island Studios in 1929. Offered here is a very rare autographed sepia toned still signed by all four brothers. It is inscribed at the top in Harpo's hand "The Best 'Chap' we know." Signed "Zeppo Marx," "How's the sound? Best Wishes, Groucho," "Ray Cozuie! Chico," and "Harpo." Rarely do photos appear that have all of the brothers signatures together as Zeppo left the team in their move to MGM in 1935. This may be one of the few existing photos if not only photo that was signed on the set of their first film. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA. The photo has had an area of two inches by two inches in Zeppo's and Groucho's waist and legs restored where there was slight surface damage. Fine-.
