Duck Soup
2011
Description
Director: Leo McCarey
The Marx brothers' duck soup is widely considered as the slapstick team's masterwork. A madcap script which is mockingly surreal, it is the chronicle of a war fever that swallows up the imaginary nation of Fredonia when Groucho becomes its dictator. Harpo and Chico play bumbling spies, with Zeppo relegated to the romantic subplot. There are countless famous sequences in the films, including the famous "mirror routine" and a stirring harmonious climax.

    About Director:- One of the greatest directors of the golden age of Hollywood, Thomas Leo McCarey (October 3, 1898 - July 5, 1969) was involved in almost 200 movies, especially comedies, where he demonstrated his great elegance and a sense of humour with finesse. French auteur Jean Renoir expressed a once widely held sentiment when he remarked, “McCarey understands people better perhaps than anyone else in Hollywood.”
