Marilyn Monroe was a relative unknown when she appeared in a walk-on role in the 1949 musical comedy Love Happy. The film, which was directed by David Miller, was written by Mac Benoff and Frank Tashlin with inspiration from a Harpo Marx story. Love Happy starred Harpo Marx, Groucho Marx, and Chico Marx. In general, it ranks in last place among Marx Brother films. Later in his career, Groucho Marx acknowledged that it was a terrible film, but he said that the most memorable thing about it was Marilyn Monroe.
