In this episode, we take a look at a porn parody trailer, Rodrigo plays Pokemon, and Zach examines Duck Soup for the first time.

Duck Soup is a 1933 Marx Brothers anarchic comedy film written by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby, with additional dialogue by Arthur Sheekman and Nat Perrin, and directed by Leo McCarey. First released theatrically by Paramount Pictures on November 17, 1933, it starred what were then billed as the “Four Marx Brothers” (Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo) and also featured Margaret Dumont, Raquel Torres, Louis Calhern and Edgar Kennedy. It was the last Marx Brothers film to feature Zeppo, and the last of five Marx Brothers movies released by Paramount.

  1. Just finished watching “Duck Soup”. Whew! I’m exhausted… it wore me out :)

    This movie is definitely a product of its time! But I enjoyed some of the routines and the overall package. The scene with the horse in bed was definitely really risque for the time. Wonder how they got away with it?!?

    Now I need to go and watch some of their other work. I’m intrigued …

  2. Karl G. Siewert on

    I was listening to this podcast in the car yesterday, and my nine-year-old son piped up from the back seat and said, “Wait. Darth Vader is who?” As we talked, I realized that his only information source on the six canon films comes from playing LEGO Star Wars. He knows the names of all the characters, but has only the vaguest conception of their relationships to each other.

    It’s probably time to take a weekend and watch the movies with him.
