Margaret Dumont was the foil for the Marx Brothers in many of their movies, and they (especially Groucho) tossed her a lot of double-entendre remarks in their movies. The best one, though, was not in the movies but at a private card party (so the story goes). Groucho was a good card player and usually won when playing against her.
