Groucho Marx's Letter to T.S. Eliot

Okay this is pretty weird.

Apparently T.S. was a big fan of Groucho's. They met after years of correspondence, initiated by the former.

"A portrait of the comedian, which Eliot requested of Marx, was proudly displayed in Eliot's home next to pictures of Yeats and Valery."

Yeah, Tom Eliot liked slap-stick... that is well-proven fact. I didn't know about the portrait, though, that's just a little bit of Eliot's own brand of weird. Thanks James!
