Have You Ever Seen A Wild Boar?

Here is a clip from the television show The Hollywood Palace hosted by Groucho Marx. Margaret Dumont guests and together they re-stage one of their earliest outings from the stage show Animal Crackers. Dumont died shortly after recording this performance lending the performance an extra layer of unintended pathos. With this in mind it’s very gratifying to see her clearly enjoying herself and being afforded such a warm round of applause from the audience. Groucho too is on top form here, it’s just a shame he didn’t don the greasepaint mustache.
