Harpo Marx - Legacy

Legacy

Harpo is most known for his signature outfit: trench coat, red wig, top hat, and a comical horn heard in his movies. He was also well-known for his talent to play the harp, even though he could not read music. For many moviegoers, Harpo Marx provided their first and only introduction to harp music. Today, thanks to reruns of Marx Brothers films, Harpo continues to entertain audiences old and new. In fact, outside the professional harp community, he remains one of the best "ambassadors for the harp" the world has known. In time, his talent earned him an international reputation as he performed in movies as well as in stage shows around the globe.

In 2002, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Walk of Stars was dedicated to him.
