Summary: A pointed political satire using most of the Marx Brothers famous routines
Summary: Directed by Leo McCarey with the Marx Brothers, Margaret Dumont, Louis Calhern, Raquel Torres, and Edgar Kennedy. A pointed political satire containing most of the Marx Brothers' famous sequences: the lemonade stand, a masterpiece of slow burn; the Paul Revere parody; the "We're Going to War" number; a beautiful spoof of 30's musicals; the mirror scene--most famous of all; and a final battle episode that has since been copied.
