Synopsis

DUCK SOUP, 1933, Universal, 68 min. Dir. Leo McCarey. Groucho is newly-appointed Prime Minister Rufus T. Firefly, who promptly declares war on a neighboring country for no particular reason. This absolutely merciless satire was a flop in its day, but by the 1960s had taken its place as one of the unconditional giants of film comedy. With Louis Calhern, Raquel Torres, Charles Middleton, Edgar Kennedy, and of course, Margaret Dumont; it was also Zeppo’s last film.<p> HORSE FEATHERS, 1932, Universal, 68 min. Dir. Norman Z. McLeod. The Marx Brothers’ zaniest film finds Groucho as the new president of Huxley College, where his son is romancing Thelma Todd and Harpo and Chico have to kidnap the star football players from rival Darwin. Co-written by S.J. Perelman, whose literate wordplay makes this a special treat, and containing the classic speakeasy and singing lesson routines. With David Landau, Nat Pendleton and Robert Grieg.</p>
