Published Caption: DUCK SOUP (1933). This was the Marx brothers’ last movie for Paramount. Groucho (right) plays Rufus T. Firefly, the new dictator of Freedonia, who declares war against neighboring Sylvania over the love of Mrs. Teasdale (Margaret Dumont) — well, the love of her money. Groucho and Harpo do the amazing mirror routine later adapted on ”I Love Lucy.” The film is also a commentary on politicians and war. ”Go and break through the lines,” says Rufus. ”And remember while you’re out there risking your life and limb through shot and shell, we’ll be in here thinking what a sucker you are.” (Photo by Paramount Pictures)
