Chico and Groucho

Chico and Groucho Marx negotiate a contract in this classic scene. Groucho is searching for the greatest tenor in the world and Chico just happens to be his manager. What follows is a comical negotiation process that makes you hope that no performer ever had a manager as incompetent as Chico. One of the highlight moments comes when Groucho asks Chico, "don't you know what duplicates are?" Listen for
Chico's misinformed response.

Another high point is at the very end when Groucho explains the Sanity Clause. They broke the mould when they made the Marx brothers.
