Firing Line: Groucho Marx


From July 7, 1967.  The formal education of Julius “Groucho” Henry Marx ended at the age of 12, but to the completion of his life he was a voracious reader and a close thinker.  His interview with Buckley demonstrated that age, he was 76 at the time, had not lessened the sharpness of his wits.  Like many comics, he was fundamentally a serious man, with an eye for the incongruities of life.  I will spare you the obvious reflections on the decline of our culture from this little time capsule, but will note that discussion, as opposed to dueling monologues, is definitely a lost art.
