Duck Soup (1933)
Remember, you're fighting for this woman's honour, which is probably more than she ever did.
So basically: Groucho Marx plays Rufus T Firefly, who has taken over Freedonia on the stimpulation of Mrs Teasdale, the countries financer. Ambassedor Trentino, of the neighboring Sylvania, wants to take over the country by marrying Mrs Teasdale and he sends two spies, Chicolini and Pinky, to watch over Firefly.
If you don't like this move then you clearly have no sense of humour. It's pure classic humour and I miss it. The comedies today just aren't as funny as they were back then. Genius. They have plays on words, hilarious falling over, skits, and the classic mirror scene! And the hats! Best hats ever. I wish everyone wore hats now. Harpo Marx is defs my favourite in this movie - he's my hero.
This movie should stay on the list forevs and everyone should see it.
Ziggi seal of approval!
