Duck Soup

Duck Soup


It’s a free-for-all when the dictator of the country of Fredonia, Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho), eager to declare war on neighboring Sylvania, destroys all hopes for diplomacy. Duck Soup is widely considered the Marx Brothers’ best work, and not only for its spectacular musical spoofs and brilliantly edited final battle scene. Chico and Harpo are hilarious as spies, and Groucho and Harpo’s pantomime as mirror images may be the most graceful portrayal of identity crisis in the history of cinema.

Leo McCarey. 1933. 68 m. NR. US. Universal Pictures.
