Kevin Film Fest: Duck Soup

Thursday, April 10 / 7 pm
Directed by Leo McCarey
1933, USA, 68 min

Widely regarded as the best Marx Brothers film ever made, Groucho is appointed the new leader of the state of Fredonia. Rufus T. Firefly, when the country is forced to borrow money from the wealthy Mrs. Teasdale. He soon takes the country to war. Kevin McDonald says, “Perhaps their most anarchic movie the Marx Brothers turn their nose up and make a mockery of everything. And since its war they’re mocking in this film, it is funny while seeming important. But mostly there is classic scene after classic scene, making the movie seem like a best of show. It bombed when it first came out and lost the Marx Brothers their contract with Paramount. It is now—and rightfully so—considered one of their strongest movies, in a career of strong movies.”
