Genre: Political Comedy
Director: Leo McCarey (Ruggles of Red Gap)
Starring: The Four Marx Brothers, Margaret Dumont, Louis Calhern, Raquel Torres, Edgar KennedyIn Brief: The Marx Brothers' fifth and final film for Paramount Pictures is far and away the best and most manic movie they ever made. It's a film that hits the ground running and never lets up for its entire length. A political comedy (with occasional elements of actual satire), Duck Soup finds Grouch being made the head of a mythical postage stamp country (that has certain aspects resembling America) for no discernible reason -- except that Margaret Dumont wants him to be. Before long, he and his brothers have reduced the place to insanity and plunged it into an incomprehensible war. All this and a giant production number about the delights of going to war gets packed into a wild 70 minutes.
