        Offstage, Marx owned a company which machined parts for the war effort during World War II, Marman Products Co. of Inglewood, California, later known as the Aeroquip Company. This company produced a motorcycle, called the Marman Twin and the Marman clamps used to hold the “Fat Man” atomic bomb inside the B-29 bomber.
