After meeting Harpo Marx in 1937 during his Hollywood trip, Dali expanded on an earlier idea for a Marx Brothers movie to be called "Giraffes on Horseback Salad," which would have included a scene of giraffes wearing gas masks and one of Chico sporting a deep-diving suit while playing the piano. Dali had Cole Porter in mind for the score.
