Today: the story of a man who wrote some of the best lines for the Marx Brothers. His name was Irving Brecher. In his final years, he spent time with another writer, Hank Rosenfeld ... and they recorded many of their conversations. Those recordings are a chance to hear one writer discovering the craft of the other, and it’s an insider’s look at the Golden Age of Hollywood. It was produced by Jon Kalish. Special thanks to KCRW. Music: Beer Barrel Polka and Chicos Mazurka, The Marx Brothers
