Comedy Flashback: Jack Benny and Groucho Marx Face Off 60 Years Ago


We find it hard to believe that it's 60 years since Jack Benny appeared in disguise as a contestant on The Groucho Marx Show. 

But it happened in 1955, when Benny, calling himself Ronald Forsythe, shows his famed attachment to money.

Playing Groucho's game, Benny tries to guess the secret word to get the duck to come down and give him 100 dollars. Groucho, seeing through Benny's disguise, tries to trick him into revealing his true age. This is a classic for both Marx and Benny.

Enjoy!
