Part of Second Saturday Outdoor Cinema
This very special Marx Brothers double feature showcases the madcap antics of the seminal group at their comedic best. In HORSE FEATHERS, Quincy Adams Wagstaff, the new president of Huxley U, hires bumblers Baravelli and Pinky to help his school win the big football game against rival Darwin U. Zaniness ensues. Next up is DUCK SOUP. Rufus T. Firefly is named president/dictator of bankrupt Freedonia and declares war on neighboring Sylvania over the love of wealthy Mrs. Teasdale. Widely considered one of the greatest comedies of all time, this laugh-a-minute political satire remains every bit as fresh and relevant today as it was 80 years ago.
