Raised Eyebrows is the bittersweet story of the last years in the life of Groucho Marx, told by a young Marx Brothers fan who was fortunate enough to work for Groucho as his personal secretary and archivist, right inside Marx's Beverly Hills home. In addition to getting to know his hero, the author was able to spend quality time with Zeppo, Gummo, Mae West, George Burns, Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon, SJ Perelman, Steve Allen, and scores of other luminaries of stage, screen, TV, and literature. The downside of this dream-come-true was getting close to his idol as the curtain was coming down, and dealing with Erin Fleming-the mercurial woman in charge of Groucho's personal and professional life. Raised Eyebrows is filled with never-before-heard anecdotes, with an introduction written by Dick Cavett. "It's one of the best books about a show-business icon I've ever read...It makes Groucho live so much more than the conventional bios."-Woody AllenShow more
