Harpo Marx Autograph
Harpo Marx was born Adolph Marx on 23rd November 1888 and was called Harpo
as he had learned to play the instrument as he couldn't sing,
dance or talk very well.
He became part of a vaudeville group
the Marx Brothers and was infamous for never talking during
performances although would blow a horn or whistle to communicate
with people. He was married to his lifelong partner Susan and had
four adopted children.
When asked how many children he
planned to adopt, he answered "I’d like to adopt as many children
as I have windows. So when I leave, I want a kid in every window,
waving goodbye." He died on 28th September 1964.
