Presenting the greatest and most hilarious examples of Groucho, one of the most influential and well-loved figures in the long and glittering history of comedy.

Tough Without a Gun by Stefan Kanfer Tough Without a Gun, Paperback / softback (February 2012)

Kanfer delivers the definitive biography of one of the great movie icons of the 20th century, and a wide-reaching appraisal of the actor's singular legacy. Through it all, Kanfer paints a background of the social and cultural context in which Bogart became, for all time, the one and only Bogie.

Somebody by Stefan Kanfer Somebody, Paperback (July 2011)

Marlon Brando will never cease to fascinate us: for his triumphs as an actor as well as his disasters; for the power of the screen portrayals he gave. This title examines each of Brando's films. It brings into focus Brando's self-destructiveness, his lifelong dissembling, his deeply ambivalent feelings towards his chosen vocation.
