Groucho talks, sings, and smokes his cigar while Cavett listens...
5 December 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable talk show moments from the late '60s with GROUCHO MARX doing his thing while reminiscing about his films, some of the people he worked with or knew during his movie days, including IRVING THALBERG, MARGARET DUMONT, CHICO MARX and GRETA GARBO.

DICK CAVETT sits back and lets Groucho take the show in any direction he wants, which includes three of his favorite songs: "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady","Father's Day" and "Everybody Works But Father." Groucho recalls that Irving Thalberg was such a difficult man to get to see (even when one had an appointment, since Thalberg was usually working on four films at a time), that he and his brothers had to play a practical joke on Thalberg to get his attention. From then on, Thalberg never kept them waiting.

He also tells an amusing anecdote about GRETA GARBO (their encounter in an elevator), and talks about how MARGARET DUMONT was able to be a straight woman for all his jokes because she never understood what they were all about.

The audience gets its share of laughs--not canned laughter, believe me--and every time they guffaw at one of Grouch's one-liners, Cavett just sits back and enjoys the spectacle of watching Groucho at work.

Lots of fun.
