Synopsis:
Apointed political satire, 'Duck Soup' is the Marx Brothers' funniest and most insane film. Groucho is Rufus T. Firefly, the hilarious dictator of mythical Freedonia. Harpo and Chico are commissioned as spies by Groucho's political rival, the calculating Trentino (Louis Calhern). The film contains many of the Brothers' famous sequences: the lemonade stand, a masterpiece of slow burn: the Paul Revere parody; the "We're Going to War" number, a beautiful spoof of '30s' musicals; the hilarious mirror scene; and a final battle episode that has been copied by everyone from Woody Allen to Mad Magazine.

Fanspankingly brilliant - The Marx Brothers: Duck Soup review by JD

Spoiler Alert
26/11/2009

This is the golden era of one line gags and puerile slapstick comedy. This has to be watched with unsophisticated receptivity. If it is there are rich rewards. Watch this with a grandchild.
