An Evening with Salvador Dali and the Marx Brothers

Sun, May 19 2019 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm $12

Brattle Theatre

Author Josh Frank joins us for this screening and to present his new book Giraffes on Horseback Salad: Salvador Dalí, the Marx Brothers, and the Strangest Movie Never Made. It seems that, once upon a time, surrealist icon Salvador Dalí and iconoclast comedians The Marx Brothers planned a never-made film that merged their sensibilities in a sublime mashup of absurdity, surrealism, slapstick, and wit. Rejected by the studio as too bizarre (surprise!), the original screenplay was thought lost… until now. Author and lost-film buff Josh Frank unearthed the original script, and Dalí’s notes and sketches for the project, tucked away in museum archives. With comedian Tim Heidecker and Spanish comics creator Manuela Pertega, he’s re-created the film as a graphic novel in all its gorgeous full-color, cinematic, surreal glory.
