No this is not Humor Risk (which is forever lost since the brothers burned the only copy), this is called:

The Incredible Jewel Robbery

Description:

The Incredible Jewel Robbery was a 30 minute TV special broadcast by CBS on 8 March 1959. It was the last television appearance together of the three Marx Brothers. Harpo and Chico plot to pull off a jewel heist in a totally wordless twenty minute sequence.

Clips of it can be found in the documentary The Unknown Marx Brothers and I think Mixed Nuts. It isn't realy that good and Groucho only appears at the very end. It's also available on 8mm.

I think the unfinished Marx Pilot 'The Deputy Seraph' is more worthy of a preservation. I would lvoe to get my hands on that.

Thanks, that's where I first saw the clips but it isn't exactly good enough for a preservation.

Is Karl Marx in this one?

Nobody is a fan of the MARX BROTHERS?

I found one place to get a digital transfer of this

CLICK

But, of course this isnt an official transfer, most likely from the originally released mm copy.

I could have sworn this was a bonus included on a Marx Brothers box set I saw in the store recently.
