Salvador Dali thought Harpo Marx was the true genius of the Marx Brothers, and so admired his mastery of comedic timing that he sent him a full sized harp restrung with barbed wire. When Harpo sent back a photo of himself playing the harp with bandaged fingers the two became fast friends. Dali had written a script for a Marx Brothers movie with Harpo in the starring role, Giraffes on Horseback Salad, which was never made because MGM believed it was “too surreal”.
