The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day will see its lawyer about this as soon as he graduates from law school!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

Today’s pic was way too cute not to share. This appears to be a shot from the making of Duck Soup starring the Marx Bros, but not really ABOUT the making of Duck Soup. The guys got a visit from little Shirley Temple and this shot was taken of Harpo and Temple that is too adorable.

The legend goes that Harpo fell in love with Shirley when she and her family happened to pass by the set during the filming of Horse Feathers and offered $50,000 to adopt her right on the spot. Keep in mind this was before she was famous.

It kind of sounds creepy now that I read back over it, but screw it. I choose to believe Harpo was just smitten with the girl and wanted to be her dad.

Hope you enjoy the pic! Thanks to Bruce Hardt for passing it along!
