The quote "Women should be obscene and not heard" is by comedian Groucho Marx, and is a tongue-in-cheek play on the adage "Children should be seen and not heard." Marx was born Julius Henry Marx in 1890, the third of five surviving sons of Sam and Minnie Marx. He appeared in numerous films and television shows, hosted several radio programs and was a guest on many others. His biggest success was the comedy quiz show You Bet Your Life, which ran from 1947 until 1961, starting on the radio and then moving to television. In 1974, Marx received a special Academy Award for the achievements of the Marx Brothers. Marx died in California in 1977.
