Duck Soup (1933) Directed by Leo McCarey
Margaret Dumont as Mrs. Teasdale and Groucho Marx as Rufus T. Firefly

Mrs. Teasdale: Your Excellency, the eyes of the world are upon you. Notables from every country are gathered here in your honor. This is a gala day for you.
Rufus T. Firefly: Well, a gal a day is enough for me. I don’t think I could handle any more.

  1. This guy was king of the puns. And the innuendo.

    And Margaret Dumont was always such a good sport.

  2. Yes a perfect choice for this series for all kinds of reasons, and always a delight. One of the two irrefutable Marx Brothers masterpieces with A NIGHT AT THE OPERA. Anarchy reigns supreme!
