Equal parts touching and revelatory, GROUCHO & CAVETT shines a light on the enduring friendship between Emmy®-winning television personality Dick Cavett and iconic comedian Groucho Marx. While working as a writer for Jack Parr on The Tonight Show, Cavett met Marx by chance at a funeral, sparking a mentorship in which Marx encouraged Cavett to step into the spotlight himself as a comedian. Through new interviews with Cavett, archival footage of Marx’s frequent visits to The Dick Cavett Show at the end of his life, and other rare recordings, director Robert S. Bader crafts a portrait of a legendary friendship spanning two comedic generations with insight, humor, and heart. A PBS American Masters release.
