Event description

Description

Duck Soup (1933)
USA 69min. PG
Directed by Leo McCarey
Starring Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Zeppo, Margaret Dumont, Louis Calhern

"Hey! Do you want to be a public nuisance?"
"Sure! How much does the job pay?"

What's the greatest anti-war comedy of all time? The greatest Marx Brothers movie of all time? You give up? It's probably Duck Soup, the fourth film by The Marx Brothers. Panned upon its release, the bristling satire finally got some well-deserved respect in the 1960s when it was discovered by the anti-war crowd. It stills works today. Trust us.

In the film, Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho) is named president/dictator of bankrupt Freedonia and declares war on neighboring Sylvania over the love of wealthy Mrs. Teasdale (Dumont).

Programme introduced by Toronto's own Will Sloan.

New 4K restoration courtesy Universal Studios.

Following the film, we will present a Super 8 digest of an earlier Marx Bros. film, Monkey Business (1931). This digest, released to the home movie market before the advent of VCRs, is a condensed version (18min.) of the feature.
