Humor Risk was the Marx Brothers first film, the movie was shown publicly once and then subsequently pulled indefinitely. The film was released in 1921 and the title parodies the 1920 smash hit Humoresque, so that explains the title, but the reason that it was taken from theaters was that it was just bad. One story is that Groucho was so unhappy with the poor quality of the film that he burned the negative after its premiere. Another story being that it was accidentally thrown away when it was left in the screening room overnight, either way the film apparently sucked so we didn't really lose anything when Humor Risk disappeared.
