SAROYAN'S 'COMEDY,' SCREEN TO STAGE
NYTimes - almost 33 years
LOS ANGELES Hollywood has always carried on a love-hate relationship with the writer. The movie bosses traditionally distrusted writers, who were known to be independent and intractable, and yet they were somewhat in awe of those mercurial creatures who could spin spellbinding yarns out of thin air. During the 1930's and 40's, the studios courted

The Edgar Rice Burroughs estate had sued M-G-M over the studio's 1981 ''Tarzan, the Ape Man,'' a movie in which the emphasis was very definitely placed on a nude Bo Derek as Jane. Tarzan was essentially a grunting straight man both to Miss Derek's plucky Jane and to a

    More Details Hide Details He was 73.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1859
    Born
    He was born in Alsace, France in 1859. Due to his place of birth he was known as "Frenchie." He met Minnie in New York where he was working as a dance teacher. They married in 1884 and had 6 sons.
    More Details Hide Details Their first son, Manfred, born 1885, died in infancy. The other children were born in 1887, Leonard, 1888, Adolph, 1890, Julius, 1892, Milton and 1901, Herbert. Marx became a tailor, although not a very good one. He was a talented cook, often convincing the landlord to delay their rent paytime with a good meal. Harpo puts the bad tailoring down to the fact that Frenchie never actually took the time to measure a client for a suit, preferring to guess their size. He would then take suits that clients had rejected and travel to New Jersey and sell these door-to-door. In his last interview, Zeppo joked that his father "was a very bad tailor but he found some people who were so stupid that they would buy his clothes, and so he'd make a few dollars that way for food".
