The Marx Brothers' best movie...

It also includes what is perhaps the Brothers' funniest scene ever: an immaculately timed and performed sequence with a broken mirror in which Groucho, Chico and Harpo look absolutely identical. A masterpiece.

This production is, for the most part, extremely noisy without being nearly as mirthful as [the Marx brothers'] other films.

The Marx Brothers created a body of work in which individual films are like slices from the whole, but Duck Soup (1933) is probably the best.
