5 Quotes from Duck Soup [Infograph]

Out of the few ‘old’ movies I have seen Duck Soup might be my favourite. It is one movie that makes me laugh so hard that tears are inevitable. Recently, I got to watch it again and I enjoyed it almost as much as my first time. I realized that apart from the slapstick humour, there is a lot of intelligent and funny dialogues present throughout the film. Most of which comes from the mouth of Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx). So I decided to create this infograph showing 5 hilarious quotes from the movie. Reading the dialogues is nowhere near as fun as watching the movie so I highly recommend you watch or re-watch the movie.  It is now my plan to go ahead and see every single movie the brothers ever made and laugh so hard until something in my body gets injured.

Transition from Small Letters to All Caps shows the change in character speaking.

I'm 16. I'm gonna be super rich soon. So better start sucking up. Edit: I'm about to turn 18, there's still time for you to start sucking up. Just saying.

  1. Big fan of the line “Oh, I was just thinking of all those years I wasted collecting stamps.
    One of my favorite films of all-time, check out my review http://amandalovesmovies.com/2012/02/25/duck-soup
    Would recommend their film Monkey Business if you liked this one.

    • Haha yeah its full of hilarious lines. I was thinking of going with ‘A night at the opera’ since its near the top of the AFI 100 laughs list but I’ll check out yours too. Thanks 🙂

      • I’ ve always been underwhelmed by A Night at the Opera. Monkey Business, Horse Feathers, & Duck Soup have the most Marx centered plots, while others had shoved young lovers plots in there because studios weren’t sure the brothers could carry a movie by themselves.

      • Hmm. Well I’ll be sure to see those ones.
