: : : : Actually, Mary's real name was Sadie Marks (at least that's the way that it's spelled in all of the bios), but she WAS a distant cousin of the Marx Brothers.

I think its unlikely.....
Note:
The Marx name was in fact originally Marrix. The Brothers' father (Simon Marrix, a tailor, born in 1860 in the Alsace region of France) changed the family name from Marrix to Marx because he hoped it would be easier to find a job in America if he made his surname sound more German.
