2-23-09 The Marx Brothers – The Country’s Goin’ To War from Duck Soup

Posted by Sean on February 23, 2009

Charlie Chaplin is always good. But when I want an anti-war musical number, I gotta go with the Marx Brothers (yeah, big surprise there).

Needless to say, this (or the first part, at least) is The Country’s Goin’ To War from 1933’s Duck Soup, possibly the best movie with the four Brothers (Zeppo went his own way after this movie). This massive Busby Berkeley-scale number is also, according to AMC’s Filmsite.org, the only musical number where you’ll see all four Brothers performing together. Imagine that!

  2. There’s nothing in this whole wide world so funny as the Marx Brothers. A lot of comedians now think all you have to do is be loud & vulgar to be funny. But the Marx Brothers knew funny—and to have a quick wit like Groucho is primo.
