A full obituary to follow. Charles Wilson Gates, Jr.
He enlisted in the U. Navy during the Korean War, trained as an electronics technician, and worked on aircraft radios. During his childhood, Clifford developed a love of nature and usually had a turtle or snake as his pet.
By the time he was in high school he was an amateur herpetologist. Gummo gained success through his agency activities and a raincoat business,  and Zeppo became a multi-millionaire through his engineering business.
Harpo, Groucho, Gummo The brothers were from a family of artists, and their musical talent was encouraged from an early age.
Harpo was particularly talented, learning to play an estimated six different instruments throughout his career. He became a dedicated harpist, which gave him his nickname. Groucho's debut was inmainly as a singer. The next year, Harpo became the fourth Nightingale and bythe group briefly expanded to include their mother Minnie and their Aunt Hannah. The troupe was renamed "The Six Mascots". Comedy[ edit ] One evening ina performance at the Opera House in Nacogdoches, Texaswas interrupted by shouts from outside about a runaway mule.
The audience hurried out to see what was happening. Groucho was angered by the interruption and, when the audience returned, he made snide comments at their expense, including "Nacogdoches is full of roaches" and "the jackass is the flower of Tex-ass". Instead of becoming angry, the audience laughed. The family then realized that it had potential as a comic troupe. The brothers' sketch "Fun in Hi Skule" featured Groucho as a German-accented teacher presiding over a classroom that included students Harpo, Gummo, and Chico.
The last version of the school act was titled Home Again and was written by their uncle Al Shean. The Home Again tour reached Flint, Michigan inwhere year-old Zeppo joined his four brothers for what is believed to be the only time that all five Marx Brothers appeared together on stage. Sheet music for one of the songs from Home Again; from left: By this time, "The Four Marx Brothers" had begun to incorporate their unique style of comedy into their act and to develop their characters.
Both Groucho's and Harpo's memoirs say that their now-famous on-stage personae were created by Al Shean. Groucho began to wear his trademark greasepaint mustache and to use a stooped walk.
Harpo stopped speaking onstage and began to wear a red fright wig and carry a taxi-cab horn. Chico spoke with a fake Italian accent, developed off-stage to deal with neighborhood toughs, while Zeppo adopted the role of the romantic and "peerlessly cheesy", according to James Agee  straight man.
The on-stage personalities of Groucho, Chico, and Harpo were said to have been based on their actual traits. Zeppo, on the other hand, was considered the funniest brother offstage, despite his straight stage roles.
He was the youngest and had grown up watching his brothers, so he could fill in for and imitate any of the others when illness kept them from performing. Zeppo stood in for Groucho in the film version of Animal Crackers. Groucho was unavailable to film the scene in which the Beaugard painting is stolen, so the script was contrived to include a power failure, which allowed Zeppo to play the Spaulding part in near-darkness.
They satirized high society and human hypocrisy, and they became famous for their improvisational comedy in free-form scenarios. A famous early instance was when Harpo arranged to chase a fleeing chorus girl across the stage during the middle of a Groucho monologue to see if Groucho would be thrown off.
However, to the audience's delight, Groucho merely reacted by commenting, "First time I ever saw a taxi hail a passenger". When Harpo chased the girl back in the other direction, Groucho calmly checked his watch and ad-libbed, "The 9: You can set your watch by the Lehigh Valley. The Cocoanuts — and Animal Crackers — Kaufman worked on the last two and helped sharpen the brothers' characterizations. Out of their distinctive costumes, the brothers looked alike, even down to their receding hairlines.DOCS: Brothers & Sisters In Love
Zeppo could pass for a younger Groucho, and played the role of his son in Horse Feathers. A scene in Duck Soup finds Groucho, Harpo, and Chico all appearing in the famous greasepaint eyebrows, mustache, and round glasses while wearing nightcaps.
The three are indistinguishable, enabling them to carry off the "mirror scene" perfectly. Origin of the stage names[ edit ] The stage names of the brothers except Zeppo were coined by monologist Art Fisher  during a poker game in Galesburg, Illinoisbased both on the brothers' personalities and Gus Mager 's Sherlocko the Monka popular comic strip of the day that included a supporting character named " Groucho ". The reasons behind Chico's and Harpo's stage names are undisputed, and Gummo's is fairly well established.
Groucho's and Zeppo's are far less clear. Arthur was named Harpo because he played the harpand Leonard became Chico pronounced "Chick-o" because he was, in the slang of the period, a "chicken chaser". Still others reported that Milton was the troupe's best dancer, and dance shoes tended to have rubber soles. Whatever the details, the name relates to rubber-soled shoes.
The reason that Julius was named Groucho is perhaps the most disputed. There are three explanations: Maxine, Chico's daughter and Groucho's niece, said in the documentary The Unknown Marx Brothers that Julius was named "Groucho" simply because he was grouchy most or all of the time.
Weidea director known for his knowledge of Marx Brothers history, said in Remarks On Marx a documentary short included with the DVD of A Night at the Opera that, among the competing explanations, he found this one to be the most believable.
Steve Allen said in Funny People that the name made no sense; Groucho might have been impudent and impertinent, but not grouchy—at least not around Allen. However, at the very end of his life, Groucho finally admitted that Fisher had named him Groucho because he was the "moody one".
A grouch bag was a small drawstring bag worn around the neck in which a traveler could keep money and other valuables so that it would be very difficult for anyone to steal them. Most of Groucho's friends and associates stated that Groucho was extremely stingy, especially after losing all his money in the stock market crashso naming him for the grouch bag may have been a comment on this trait.
Groucho insisted that this was not the case in chapter six of his first autobiography: I kept my money in a 'grouch bag'. This was a small chamois bag that actors used to wear around their neck to keep other hungry actors from pinching their dough.
Naturally, you're going to think that's where I got my name from. But that's not so. Grouch bags were worn on manly chests long before there was a Groucho. Groucho himself insisted that he was named for a character in the comic strip Knocko the Monkwhich inspired the craze for nicknames ending in "o"; in fact, there was a character in that strip named "Groucho".
However, he is the only Marx or Marx associate who defended this theory, and as he is not an unbiased witness, few biographers take the claim seriously. Groucho himself was no help on this point; he was discussing the Brothers' names during his Carnegie Hall concert, and he said of his own, "My name, of course, I never did understand.
The family believed that he was a rich uncle hiding a fortune, and Groucho claimed that he may have been named after him by the family trying to get into the will. As with Groucho, three explanations exist for Herbert's name "Zeppo": Harpo said in Harpo Speaks!
Zippo, a chimpanzee that was part of another performer's act. Herbert found the nickname very unflattering, and when it came time for him to join the act, he put his foot down and refused to be called "Zippo". The brothers compromised on "Zeppo". Chico never wrote an autobiography and gave fewer interviews than his brothers, but his daughter Maxine said in The Unknown Marx Brothers that, when the brothers lived in Chicago, a popular style of humor was the " Zeke and Zeb " joke, which made fun of slow-witted Midwesterners in much the same way that Boudreaux and Thibodeaux jokes mock Cajuns and Ole and Lena jokes mock Minnesotans.
One day, Chico returned home to find Herbert sitting on the fence. Herbert greeted him by saying "Hi, Zeke! The brothers thereafter called him "Zeb" and, when he joined the act, they floated the idea of "Zebbo", eventually preferring "Zeppo".
In a tape-recorded interview excerpted on The Unknown Marx Brothers, Groucho said that Zeppo was so named because he was born when the first zeppelins started crossing the ocean.
He stated this in his Carnegie Hall concert, around The first zeppelin flew in Julyand Herbert was born seven months later in February However, the first transatlantic zeppelin flight was not untillong after Herbert's birth.
