2012 in Film: #47

Duck Soup (1933) | Directed by Leo McCarey

Grade: A

Thoughts: A classic comedy in anyone’s estimation, the smart comedy blends in visual, vaudevillian gags with perfect satire of WWII and the Great Depression. Very memorable scenes and paced splendidly. Brusk without feeling rushed.
