A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: THE MARX BROTHERS ON THE BIG SCREEN!
Double Feature!
DUCK SOUP / ANIMAL CRACKERS

More Marx Brothers comedy with DUCK SOUP, in which 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 - and ANIMAL CRACKERS, which finds the boys running amuck at a swanky Long Island estate where a priceless painting has been stolen. Join us before the double feature at 6:30PM in the Egyptian lobby, where Robert Bader will sign copies of his book Groucho Marx and Other Short Stories and Tall Tales: The Selected Writings of Groucho Marx and Bill Marx will sign copies of Son of Harpo Speaks.

DUCK SOUP
1933, Universal, 68 min, USA, 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.


ANIMAL CRACKERS
1930, Paramount, 97 min, USA, Dir: Victor Heerman

The Marx Bros.’ second film finds them running amok at a swanky Long Island estate where a priceless painting has been stolen. This invaluable record of their last Broadway show features Groucho’s immortal theme song, "Hooray for Captain Spaulding," the classic bridge game and dictating-a-letter routines, and delightful support from the legendary Lillian Roth, plus Louis Sorin, Robert Greig and, of course, Margaret Dumont.
