Duck Soup on TCM

printducksoup4654Be sure to get all your ducks set up in a row! On Tuesday April 26th at 9:15am TCM will be broadcasting the classic Marx Brothers comedy Duck Soup. Considered by many to be the team’s best film, it’s a no holds barred, anarchistic, satire on war, politics and bureaucrats ranking up there with Dr. Strangelove and The Great Dictator.

War is viewed as an insane idiots game.

Rufus T. Firefly: You’re a brave man. Go and break through the lines. And remember, while you’re out there risking you’re life and limb through shot and shell, we’ll be in here thinking what a sap you are.

and…

Ambassador Trentino : I am  willing to do anything to prevent this war.

Rufus T. Firefly: It’s too late. I’ve already paid a month’s rent on the battlefield.

You can read more about Duck Soup in my book, Lessons in the Dark, available at as an ebook on Amazon.com
