Groucho Marx was boy soprano in an Episcopal Church choir!

You don't believe me? It says so in this cartoon. You bet your Captain Roscoe!

Hmmm, I'm skeptical. He was a young singer (along with his brothers). They did a musical act before evolving to comedy. Since they were Jewish, I can't imagine any of them being in an Episcopal church.

A Jew singing in church is what makes it a 'Screen Oddity.'

Another thing Groucho and I have in common. (Except for me it was a Catholic choir.)

The choirboy has no glasses... no greasepaint eyebrows and mustache... not even a cigar... that ain't Groucho.
