Leo McCarey | USA | 1933 | 69m | U
Considered one of the top comedies of all time, ‘Duck Soup’ is filled to bursting with gags from the Marx Brothers. Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx) wages war with a neighbouring country over a trifling matter but the unruly spirit of the Marx Brothers tramples over any attempt at narrative or logic. Featuring Groucho’s most iconic one-liners and inspired physical comedy including the brilliant ‘mirror scene’.
Screening as part of BFI’s Comedy Genius Season. With the support of the Independent Cinema Office and BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
