Duck Soup

This is definitely the Marx Brothers at their best. Groucho Marx plays a newly appointed dictator in this satire about war and international relations. Harpo and Chico are spies who add a lot of physical humor and plays-on words. This film is filled with all the usual antics and slapstick humor that the Marx Brothers provide. It is probably considered their best film, and is absolutely my favorite.
