Duck Soup

Arguably the Marx Brothers’ funniest film, this comedy masterpiece contains several famous scenes, including the hilarious mirror sequence. A wealthy widow offers financial aid to the bankrupt country of Freedonia on condition that Rufus T. Firefly be made leader. But his chaotic, inept regime bumbles into war with neighboring Sylvania.


The film is part of a "Screen Comedy" series which is modeled after a college Introduction to Film Studies course. Each film is followed by engaging post-film dialogues with Ian Ally-Seals, Cinema Coordinator at Real Art Ways. Containing five film comedies from a variety of places and times, participants will learn how to view these films with a critical eye, and engage with the screen on a deeper level.
