Madness and laughs aplenty are unleashed when the bankrupt state of Freedonia appoints Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx) as its leader at the request of wealthy patron Mrs. Teasdale (the wonderfully deadpan Margaret Dumont). Featuring some of the best comic sequences ever filmed including the famous "mirror scene" and "three hat routine," Duck Soup is one of the Marx Brothers' finest comedies.
