“He knows how to tell a story – he moves the plot, moves it back, then moves it out and shakes it all about. If TV cartoons were good they’d take a page out of Pantalones. Funny stuff.” – Shannon Wheeler (New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man)
Giraffes on Horseback Salad, also called The Surrealist Woman, was a screenplay written in 1937 by Salvador Dalí for the Marx Brothers. The screenplay was never produced, allegedly because Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the Marx Brothers’ studio at the time, considered it to be too surreal (proposed scenes included gas mask-wearing giraffes, and Harpo Marx catching dwarves in a butterfly net). Other sources allege that Groucho Marx felt that the screenplay just wasn’t funny.
For several years, Giraffes was thought to be lost. However, in 1996, it was found amid Dalí’s personal papers.
