The great comedian Groucho Marx died 30 years ago Sunday. With his brothers Chico and Harpo — and occasionally, Zeppo or Gummo — Groucho made more than a dozen films, some of them considered to be among the top 10 all-time comedy films.

Marx went on to radio and television with You Bet Your Life and performed a one-man show at Carnegie Hall in 1972.
