No public domain pictures of Chico playing the piano so this will have to do.
Kids, these guys were really playing while the cameras rolled. They aren’t actors finger-synching.

Jerry Lee Lewis. Here he is, the glissando master, with “Great Balls of Fire”
Little Richard, with “Lucille”.
Chico Marx (assisted by Harpo) from “The Big Store”
Harpo Marx playing “Wreckmaninoff”.
Send in your favorites. I’m partial to humorous playing, but I won’t discriminate against the serious stuff.
