ABOUT THE FILMS

 

HORSE FEATHERS, 1932, Universal, 68 min. Dir. Norman Z. McLeod

The Marx Bros.’ zaniest film finds Groucho as the new president of Huxley College, where his son (Zeppo!) is romancing Thelma Todd and Harpo and Chico have to kidnap the star football players from rival Darwin. Cowritten by S.J. Perelman, whose literate wordplay makes this a special treat, and containing the classic speakeasy and singing-lesson routines. With David Landau, Nat Pendleton and Robert Grieg (for once not cast as a butler).

FORMAT: 35mm


DUCK SOUP, 1933, Universal, 68 min. Dir. Leo McCarey

Margaret Dumont appoints Groucho (Rufus T. Firefly) as prime minister of Freedonia, and he promptly declares war on a neighboring country for no particular reason. With the legendary mirror sequence and Harpo and Chico’s mercurial harassing of the lemonade vendor.

FORMAT: 35mm
