    Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador: http://tinyurl.com/klxbt4y
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too. You can go to the Home page of her blog to watch it:

    • I love the Marx Brothers. My brothers and I used to watch them on TV when we were kids and we’d laugh until the tears ran down our faces.

        Me too! I always loved the joyful scamps as they frolicked and caused general chaos wherever they went.
        The last time I remember seeing “At the Circus” was in the ’80s when I was dating a girl called Lydia and I needed a refresher from a master on what to expect.
        Wikipedia says the movie I watched was from 1939 but the first thing I noticed tonight was how young Groucho looked. Do you have any idea what film this came from because I have memories befogged by time and thought that song was unique to “At the Circus”. Groucho appears to be late20s-early 30s but he was in his late 40s by 1939. I was surprised to see the young Groucho– I always thought he was a middle age snarky lunatic when he was born.

        • As far as I know, “At the Circus” is the only movie where Groucho sang “Lydia.”

            Well, please forgive my anal search for the origin of that clip. I went this afternoon and found “At The Circus” on Amazon for $2.99. I started it and must have fallen asleep right away because “Lydia …” showed up less than 1/2 hour from the beginning and I woke up with 8 minutes left. I scrolled back and found the song, which WAS the version in your blogs video.
            Groucho was born in 1890 which would make him 48-49yo in 1939. He looked like a young adult in your clip. AND, his mustache seemed to be painted on in both clip and movie which I do not remember from those many years ago.
            Also, your video viewer and clip version was very good quality– very much better than Youtube which always seems bad for me and even better than the Amazon full version.
            I hope you get a curiosity bump from this instead of an annoyed eye roll and an “OK, let it go.” flash of annoyed wonderment.
            Wait, one more thing I did not remember! Eve Arden was the bad guy’s girlfriend and she was a knockout. Remember her from the TV show “Our Miss Brooks” in the early ’50s where she played a school teacher? She had a very distinctive voice.

          • It’s been a while since I’ve watched the movies (I have them all on DVD, and when my kids were little we used to watch them frequently), but I do recall that in some of them Groucho had his natural mustache and in others he had that very exaggerated almost-rectangular greasepaint mustache. And yes, he does look very young for a man his age in “At the Circus” — I’d never have guessed he was almost fifty!
