: : "Behind every man who's a failure there's a woman too!"

: : Someone famous gave that quote as well. I forget who.

: That was the caption of a cartoon in Playboy, March 1967 by John Ruge (untraced).
: As usual there's a great woman behind every idiot. John Lennon in 1979.
: We in the industry know that behind every successful screenwriter stands a woman. And behind her stands his wife. Groucho Marks quoted in 1977.

And if he said that in 77, then that was the year he died and he was 87 and still firing. What a guy!!!
