*** MARX MEMBER'S DAY SPECIAL EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT ***
You Are Invited to the 57th Birthday of Louis Marx!!!
By special arrangement with Fun House Toy Company, the Marx Toy Museum in Moundsville, WV, will hold a special 'MEMBERS ONLY' viewing of a RARE FILM shot in and around the Marx family's Scarsdale mansion, on the occasion of Louis Marx's birthday in 1953.
The film entitled, "The MARX OF TIME" was a hour-long professionally photographed 'home movie' commissioned by Mrs. Idella Marx to honor the toy maker on his 57th birthday, and features the members of his immediate family, and lots of 'showing off' of the family's riches (check out that Cadillac convertible!).
Please note: The film is a 'work print,' and as such, has no audio portion; none the less, the images, and 'snapshot' of the lifestyle of the Toy King make for a compelling view, and there is no 'finished version' of film known to exist today…
The Members Day Event will conclude at 9 pm.
As advanced notice, during this event, photography will be limited.
The AGENDA is SET!!!
Definitely a Weekend You Will Not Want to Miss!!!
