Who died on this date:
On October 11, 1961, actor/ comedienne Chico Marx died. He was born on March 22, 1887 in New York City. He along with his brothers formed the Marx Brothers. His persona in the act was that of a dim-witted albeit crafty con artist, seemingly of rural Italian origin, who wore shabby clothes, and sported a curly-haired wig and hat. As the first-born of the five Marx Brothers, he also played an important role in the management and development of the act, at least in its early years.
