    This is such classic Groucho. Put him in front of a camera and he just takes over. How he makes things get out of control is amazing.

    “You’re in a much better position for that than I am!” Classic, classic Groucho.

    cigarette adds, cigars, cigarettes…. another era

    No wonder Garry Moore wound up, ironically, with throat cancer. He always had a cigarette going, as did Johnny Carson, who died a miserable death from emphysema. At least Paar, Kovacs, and Groucho smoked cigars.

    Wow, when he says: “You’ll never see this show again.” and yet people still watch this 50 years onwards. Utter genius. This is so funny I almost cried.

    omg they hardly even get to ask any questions. Groucho just keeps on stealing the spotlight. the man might just have been the funniest man in show business ever!

    He He He! : )

    I love it still smoking on the tv

  14. bashbrannigan says:

    @antinotis It’s just a TV game show, not 60 Minutes! Groucho is being appropriately disruptive.

  15. bashbrannigan says:

    “If you don’t come back, that’ll be OK too.” Groucho is great!

    @Addyson1991 The sexy blonde with the accent is Monique Van Vooren from Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein. The other cutsie blonde is Betsy Palmer from Friday the 13th.

    can’t find a clip of chico as harpo on ive got a secret rats

  23. antinotis says:

    I like Groucho but he is kind of irritating; he wouldn’t answer any of the questions so no chance his secret would be guessed.

  24. fromthesidelines says:

    …and because Garry Moore was a lifelong smoker, often “lighting up” on camera for Winston on “I’VE GOT A SECRET” AND the various daily and prime-time shows he appeared in under R.J. Reynolds’ sponsorship, he eventually died of lung cancer in 1993.

  25. fromthesidelines says:

    Very gutsy of the producers to allow Groucho to appear with his cigar when the sponsor was supposed to be R.J. Reynolds’ Winston cigarettes (they sustained the show from 1955 through ’61). They frowned on ANY other kind of on-air smoking [including pipes] when their cigarette brands sponsored a TV show- especially John Cameron Swayze’s “CAMEL NEWS CARAVAN” on NBC in the early ’50s {the exception was showing Sir Winston Churchill in news footage with HIS stogie}.
