“The most perfect of Marxist masterpieces.”
– Time Out

 

“The most zanily absurdist and the funniest of the Marx Brothers movies. As an ensemble act drawing upon the full weaponry of vaudeville humor, the Brothers Marx unleash a comic anarchy that for once reduces kingdoms to shambles as they romp down corridors of palace power, through the halls of justice, and onto the final Armageddon of a crazy battlefield.”
– Andrew Sarris

DUCK SOUP and  INTERNATIONAL HOUSE

INTERNATIONAL HOUSE

(Edward Sutherland) "Don't let the pansy fool ya." As the bidders for Dr. Wong's "radioscope" (aka TV) gather in Wu Hu, China, U.S. exec Stu Erwin gets chicken pox; Burns & Allen and Rudy Vallee do their shtik; Cab Calloway swings "Reefer Man" (!); and Fields flies in on his seemingly beer-fuelled "auto-gyro," The Spirit of Brooklyn. Approx. 68 min. 35mm.
