"THAT'S ME GROUCHO" Cocktail Napkins 1954
posted:
 These are cocktail napkins from 1954 featuring the cartoon likeness of the man TIME magazine dubbed "King Leer", Groucho Marx. The humor, if one can call it that, is of the "nod,nod, wink, wink" variety. The kind of stuff that apparently convulsed our Dad and Granddads. It's a safe bet that George S. Kaufman, Morrie Ryskind, S.J. Perelman, Arthur Sheekman Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby had no hand in writing these. You might want to add Groucho himself to that list. 
DeSoto was a sponsor for Groucho's  tv quiz show "You Bet Your Life."
