Remembering Groucho Marx – 19 August 1977

Julius Henry ‘Groucho’ Marx died of pneumonia in Los Angeles on 19 August 1977 – he was 86.

To mark the day, here is a wonderful photograph of Groucho ‘in action’ with Margaret Dumont.

And just for good measure, we’ve included a quirky, wee story about Groucho’s sudden decision to stop playing his son, Arthur, at tennis.
