DID GROUCHO TAKE OVER "I'VE GOT A SECRET?" "YOU BET YOUR LIFE," HE DID - I'VE GOT A SECRET - CBS-TV - CIRCA JULY 1, 1959
What happens when the irascible icon of American comedy , Grouch Marx, host of NBC-TV's fast and furious YOU BET YOUR LIFE pays a visit to the genteel and genial I'VE GOT A SECRET ON CBS-TV?
Groucho not only stridently smoked a cigar on a show sponsored by Winston cigarettes, defying a commercial convention that wasn't challenged in 1950's network television, but he scorched the segment with rapid-fire ad-libs that were tinged with acidic wit.
Here, from the CLASSIC VIDEO STREAM YOU TUBE site, is Groucho's guest spot on I'VE GOT A SECRET.Enjoy!!!!!
