Groucho and the Cuban cigar

Julius Henry Marx was born in New York City on October 2, 1890.  Later, he and the Marx Brothers made us laugh and laugh. My favorite is “A night at the opera,” but the others are great, too!   My late father once told me that the movies were popular in Cuba.

Did you know that Groucho loved Cuban cigars?  He was often seen with a Cuban cigar in his mouth in movies or on his “You bet your life” television show.  

Groucho died in 1977.

  1. This reminds me of a family story about Cuban mothers copying the clothes they’d seen in Shirley Temple movies for their daughters. The normalcy and innocence of that is heartbreaking in light of the horrible dystopia Cuba became. It really was a tragedy, but it was also a crime.
