Groucho: My daughter is half-Jewish
Was just watching this show on PBS about Groucho Marx. A woman was interviewed and she talked about a conversation she had with Groucho about anti-semitism in Hollywood. He said he once tried to join the Santa Monica Swim Club and they said "No Jews allowed." So he said to them: " Listen, my daughter is half-Jewish -- is it all right if she goes swimming in your pool up to her waist?"
