Former Groucho Marx home in Beverly Hills is for sale
Edward R. Murrow interviewed him in the home in the 1950s.
The Spanish-style estate has been maintained by the same family for the last half-century. Marx's initials are carved into the concrete in two spots — the driveway and near the pool. A copper storage unit that the actor made in the upstairs office to store his signature cigars is intact. Fruit trees that he planted remain on the property. Marx was interviewed by Edward R. Murrow in the house in the '50s.
Marx made more than a dozen movies as part of the sibling team the Marx Brothers, as well as his own films. A host of radio and television game shows, he died in 1977 at age 86.
Sally Forster Jones and Daniel M. Weiser of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills East office have the listing.
