TCM Schedule for Tuesday, October 2: Groucho's Birthday and The Projected Image
Heads up, everyone. It's the birthday of Groucho Marx or, as I like to think of him, the patron saint of smart-asses. He also happened to be a middle child, and I find it not only poignant but strangely fitting that his life's end should be overshadowed by the death of Elvis Presley several days earlier.
Wherever you are, Julius Henry Marx, we at DU salute you.
