9780978998080: The Wicked Wit of the West

"Brecher is the most influential writer you've never heard of in Hollywood. He wrote At the Circus and Go West for the Marx brothers and classics such as Du Barry Was a Lady and Meet Me in St. Louis for MGM. He wrote stand-up for Milton Berle and created the radio and television program The Life of Riley. Now in his nineties, the man is still a comedic genius with wit and timing that can't be beat. Incredibly, his career covers the entire spectrum of 20th-century entertainment, beginning with vaudeville and encompassing movies, radio, plays, television, and even the web (in impassioned support for the writers' strike of 2007). Brecher's story is presented as a series of interviews, which allows his voice to come through in its witty splendor. Rosenfeld does a fine job as chronicler, selector, and muse for these interviews, and his genuine friendship with Brecher is the reason that this book exists. Altogether delightful, this is an incredible reminiscence by a remarkable man." -- Library Journal starred review

Book Description:

"Irving Brecher never did a damn thing for me. He already committed his crime, by putting Milton in the business." -- Red Buttons

From the Publisher:

Funnyman Irving Brecher wrote gags for Milton Berle, and movies for the Marx Brothers. Now 94 (he'll be 95 in January!), Irv has been coaxed by his co-author into sharing the wit that won him Groucho's friendship.

Irv Brecher is the man Groucho Marx called "The Wicked Wit of the West," and S.J. Perelman considered "one of the three quickest with a quip" he'd ever seen. Irv is the last living Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio figure from the 1940's, where he wrote Meet Me in St. Louis and was nominated for the Academy Award. He wrote seven musicals in all, including "Bye Bye Birdie," and other scripts for Judy Garland, Lucille Ball, and Fred Astaire. He wrote a Thin Man movie starring William Powell and Myrna Loy, and two Marx Brothers features, and even "punched up" comedy material for The Wizard of Oz.

What began as Hank's newspaper assignment from the Calendar section of the Los Angeles Times on "Golden Age" subjects being archived by Turner for prosperity, became the start of a beautiful relationship . Hank was so struck by Irv's stories that their lunches and talks developed into a six-year friendship.

Irv Brecher is a national treasure.
