(1933) dir Leo McCarey w/The Marx Brothers, Margaret Dumont [68 min]
In celebration of the Cambridge READS program, this year examining Sebastian Junger’s War, we present two of the greatest anti-war comedies ever created. In the Marx Brothers’ DUCK SOUP, Groucho is the selfish, absurd, and childish leader of Fredonia who sparks a war with neighboring Sylvania over the love of a rich widow. “You’re a brave man. Go and break through the lines. And remember, while you’re out there risking your life and limb through shot and shell, we’ll be in be in here thinking what a sucker you are.”
