TV Tuesday: Grouch Marx and Rock Hudson for DeSoto

I felt almost uncomfortable watching Groucho "Mr. Anarchy" Marx making such an earnest pitch in this DeSoto commercial. I kept waiting for the punchline. However, it did make me realize how much I like to hear him speak, no matter what he is saying.

On the other hand, while Rock Hudson has the looks of a born pitchman, he delivers his lines with a lot less enthusiasm. Doesn't he seem bored? (I wish they still made cars with that snazzy "sports swivel seat"):
