Thanksgiving with Lydia the Tattooed Lady 1

Film · Music

Our holiday pick: The Brothers Marx in their ode to the much-marked Lydia the Tattooed Lady. In Thanksgiving gratitude for Yip Harburg‘s brilliant lyric, “And a torso even moreso!”

Kermit loves her too.

Guitarist Gary Lucas plucks the polyphony – and poetry – in Groucho Marx’s torch song to the scribbled dame.

    Funny again and again. “Adore so”, “torso”, “more so”. Brilliant so!
