October 21, 18921 – April 21, 1977

Milton “Gummo” Marx was the 2nd youngest of the Marx Brothers comedy team.  He was a part of the family’s early vaudeville days but was drafted into the Army near the end of World War I and never joined them in their film careers.  After his military service, he returned to show business as an agent. He represented his brother, Groucho, and a number of other writers and actors.

1 – His actual birth date is disputed. It also could be October 23rd. Or it could be in 1893, as his grave marker states. The date I have listed is from his draft record.
