Duck Soup

1933 / 68min / DCP

DIRECTOR: LEO MCCAREY

CAST: GROUCHO MARX, HARPO MARX, CHICO MARX

One of the handful of movies whose farcical fancy can approach contemporary political reality, the Marx Bros. diplomatic burlesque has Groucho at his rapid-fire best as Rufus T. Firefly, elected head of state in tiny Freedonia by backer Margaret Dumont, only to face meddling by spies from neighboring Sylvania, played by Harpo and Chico. Banned in Italy by Mussolini, who never could take a joke.
