HERE HE IS...THE ONE, THE ONLY… GROUCHO (1991)
A glimpse at the life and career of one of the most iconic comedians of all time, Groucho Marx. His restless eyebrows, loping walk, and ever-present cigar where only props. But his unique humor and wit, combined with a deadpan rat-a-tat-tat delivery, made Groucho an American treasure. Narrated by David Steinberg, this 1991 PBS special included warm tributes and candid recollections offered by Art Linkletter, Dick Cavett, Jack Lemmon, Richard Lewis, Miriam Marx Allen, Nat Perin, George Fenneman, Marvin Hamlisch and other professional colleagues.
George Fenneman, the announcer and straight man on "You Bet Your Life," reminisces about Groucho's ability to twist the contestants' answers into a comedy routine, while Groucho's daughter Miriam shares insights into her father's often turbulent personal life. (58 min)
