Conte$t: Thanksgiving Harpo Marx Quiz

Thanksgiving is this Thursday, and would make a fitting subject for our weekly trivia contest, so we won't use it, of course. Instead we'll have a quiz about another great American institution, Harpo Marx, who was born on November 23, the date of Thanksgiving this year.

Answer any one of the following questions to be in the running for a $10 gift certificate from Small World Music.

- What was Harpo's real name?

- In the Marx Brothers act, as Chico was supposed to be Italian, Harpo was also supposed to be a particular nationality. What was it?

- Did Harpo really play the harp, or was it dubbed?

Answer any one of these questions for a chance to win. You can even win with a WRONG answer, as we select one winner at random from correct entries, and one from incorrect, if there are any. We reward not just expertise, but effort.

Enjoy Thanksgiving, enjoy the Marx Brothers, and send your contest entry directly to Small World Music at

Thanks, & good luck !
