Groucho Marx

Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx, born on October 2, 1890, and passing away on August 19, 1977, was an American comedian, actor, writer, and singer with a versatile career that spanned film, television, radio, stage, and vaudeville. Renowned for his quick wit, Groucho Marx is widely regarded as one of America’s greatest comedians.

As the third-born of the Marx Brothers, Groucho Marx collaborated with his siblings to create 13 feature films. Beyond the Marx Brothers, Groucho enjoyed a successful solo career, particularly in radio and television. He gained notable recognition as the host of the popular game show “You Bet Your Life.”

Groucho’s distinctive appearance, stemming from his vaudeville days, featured iconic quirks such as an exaggerated stooped posture, spectacles, a cigar, and a thick greasepaint mustache (later replaced by a real mustache) and eyebrows. These exaggerated features led to the creation of one of the most recognizable novelty disguises, known as Groucho glasses. This one-piece mask includes horn-rimmed glasses, a large plastic nose, bushy eyebrows, and a mustache.
