Happy Birthday Margaret Dumont!


It would be a great crime for a fan of the Brother's Marx not to mark today as the birthday of Daisy Juliette Baker AKA Margaret Dumont.

Known mostly as the "straight guy" in most of the Marx Brother's films, Groucho himself once refered to Ms. Dumont as "The 5th Marx Brother".

Dumont's last film was in 1964 when she played Shirley MacLaine's mother in, "What a Way to Go!".
