Humor Risk, also known as Humorisk, is a 1921 comedy short film that was the first film to star the Marx Brothers. It was never released and is now considered a lost film. The print may have been accidentally thrown away when left in the screening box overnight. Another version of the story says that Groucho Marx, unhappy with the film's quality, intentionally burned the negative after a particularly bad premiere screening.
