Duck Soup, Monkey Business, Horse Feathers

'Duck Soup' In postage-stamp sized Freedoria, Prime Minister Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho) declares war on neighbouring Sylvania just for the hell of it in this satiric masterpiece. 'Monkey Business' While stowing away on a ship to America, the boys get involuntarily pressed into service as toughs for a pair of feuding gangsters while trying desparately to evade the ship's crew. After arriving stateside, one of the gangsters kidnaps the other's daughter - and it's up to our unlikely heroes to save the day. 'Horse Feathers' Quincy Adams Wagstaff, the new president of Huxley University, accidentally hires bumblers Baravelli and Pinky to help his school win the big football game against the rival Darwin University.
