Duck Soup

By Heather Joslyn | Posted

Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Zeppo . . . and their greatest (and woefully underrated) foil, Margaret Dumont. A story line--such as there ever is in Marx Brothers movies--about political intrigue and war that satirizes Europe's then-rising fascism. Seventy minutes of breakneck hijinks unsullied by romantic subplots or annoying musical interludes. Lines like, "We're fighting for your honor--which is more than you ever did!" Trust me, you have nothing better to do.
