SYNOPSIS

‘When the tiny nation of Freedonia goes bankrupt, its wealthy benefactor, Mrs. Teasdale (Margaret Dumont), insists that the wacky Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx) become the country’s president. The neighboring country of Sylvania sends two spies—Pinky (Harpo Marx) and Chicolini (Chico Marx)—to set the stage for a revolution. Filled with genius gags and physical comedy, this satirical romp represents the Marx Brothers at their absolute finest.’ UCLA
