Livingston Marx, African Explorer.

1 Greetings From Groucho, 1972. 3 Hooray For Captain Spaulding. 4 Livingston Marx, African Explorer 18:30.

Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx (October 2, 1890 – August 19, 1977) was an American comedian and film and television star.

Rare clips - and a complete episode of "The Bing Crosby Show" - highlight Groucho Marx's guest appearances on classic radio shows. Included: "The Jack Benny Program" (Groucho plays checkers with Jack), "Birdseye Open House" (Groucho reprises his Dr. Hackenbush character from "A Day at the Races," and in a second program appears in a skit called The Thorndykes), Philco Radio Program (Groucho joins Bing Crosby in Pittsburgh), and "The Bing Crosby Show" (complete episode).

This classic collection of Groucho Marx's correspondence, which was donated to the Library of Congress, at their request, gives the best glimpse into who Groucho Marx was. Not only do we see his letters to his family and friends, who included some of the century's most famous people, but we get to see what people wrote in return. Groucho's personality and wit shine through, and these letters are a rare treasure  . Groucho responds that, perhaps, since the Marx Brothers were famous before the Warner Brothers, that perhaps they owned the rights to use "Brothers"?

The Marx Brothers were an American family comedy act that was successful in vaudeville, on Broadway, and in motion pictures from 1905 to 1949. Five of the Marx Brothers' thirteen feature films were selected by the American Film Institute (AFI) as among the top 100 comedy films, with two of them (Duck Soup (1933) and A Night at the Opera (1935)) in the top twelve. They are widely considered by critics, scholars, and fans to be among the greatest and most influential comedians of the 20th century
