Groucho Marx Daydreaming

One of Groucho's signature trademarks (besides his glasses, silly walk, fake eyebrows and moustache) was a simple cigar. He once explained that he used the cigar because it offered a chance to pause and invent a new line and a chance to catch his breath. One of his most famous: "One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know."

Groucho's mustache (a real one) and his ubiquitous cigar can also be seen on his classic quiz program YOU BET YOUR LIFE/NBC/1950-61. His catchphrase from that program was "Say the secret word and win a hundred dollars."
