Only Harpo Marx could play 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' on a harp on I Love Lucy, and be completely mesmerizing

The Marx Brothers

Because Harpo couldn't compete with the comedic wits of his brothers, his lines were taken away from him. Though insulted at first, he soon became a gifted mime, particularly in his use of facial expressions and a honking horn.

A real classic ... Lucille Ball & Harpo Marx in an episode of I Love Lucy

I would have to say the Harpo Marx episode, especially when Lucy and Harpo do the mirror routine. It’s said they rehearsed that scene so many times, that it confused Harpo!

Harpo Marx    (November 23, 1888 – September 28, 1964) was an American comedian and film star. He was the second-oldest of the Marx Brothers. His comic style was influenced by clown and pantomime traditions. He wore a curly reddish blonde wig, and never spoke during performances (he blew a horn or whistled to communicate). Marx frequently used props such as a horn cane, made up of a lead pipe, tape, and a bulbhorn, and he played the harp in most of his films.
