Known popularly by the nickname Chico Marx, Leonard Marx was the eldest of the Marx Brothers who gained fame for themselves in the entertainment industry in the initial years of the 20th century. A comedian and actor, he sported a charming yet dim-witted character of the Italian origin in the various acts of the brothers. Not only did he sport a curly-haired wig and Tyrolean hat to complete the look, he complemented the same with an Italian accent as well. Though Marx spent the better part of his life gambling and womanizing, he was blessed with shrewd and savvy business sense. It was due to his business acumen that the Marx Brothers gained a contract with the MGM and also much profits from their acts. However, he could not manage his own wealth which remained elusive due to his lifelong gambling addiction and penchant for chasing women. Nevertheless, his antic personality drew him a lot of fame and distinction.
