Groucho on the Jack Benny program

Below is a clip from the Jack Benny TV program in which they do a spoof on the quiz show You Bet Your Life, hosted by Groucho Marx, who makes a guest appearance here in his own role. However, Benny comes on camera disguised as a contestant, playing up to his cultivated personna as a cheapskate moneygrubber. He also had a major gag in that he claimed to be 39 years old long after it was obvious he was older. Jack gets caught between his two faults. This is hilarious!
