1888: Comedian and actor Harpo Marx, the second-oldest of the Marx Brothers comedy team, is born Adolph Marx in New York City. Harpo would become known for wearing a curly reddish wig and never speaking in films, instead blowing a horn or whistling to communicate. He died at the age of 75 on Sept. 28, 1964, after undergoing open heart surgery in Los Angeles following a heart attack, barely six months after his retirement.
