Groucho's Glasses

These iconic wire rim glasses belonging to Groucho Marx were worn by the comedian in "A Night at the Opera" (1935) and "A Day at the Races" (1937), as well as elsewhere. They went on the auction block last week at Profiles in History with a pre-sale estimate of $20,000-$30,000. They were sold for the eyebrow-raising price of $70,000 plus a buyer's premium of $16,100, a fitting tribute to the legendary comedian.
