Duck Soup is a Marx Brothers classic and one of the most influential comedies in film history. It tells the story of the small country of Freedonia and the chaos that ensues when the wealthy Mrs. Teasdale hires the bumbling Rufus T. Firefly as the new president. Firefly and his cabinet, consisting of his dimwitted brothers Chicolini and Pinky, are quickly embroiled in a war with neighboring Sylvania over the hand of Mrs. Teasdale and the future of Freedonia. Along the way, there is a series of hilarious antics, misunderstandings, and physical comedy as the brothers outwit and outlast their enemies. At the end, Freedonia is saved and Firefly is recognized as one of the greatest minds in history. Duck Soup is filled with classic gags, sight gags, and one-liners that have stood the test of time.
