Friends of Film Group discusses ‘Duck Soup’

If you are interested in viewing and discussing films - from old silent movies and the latest thrillers to cartoons and documentaries – you might be interested in the library’s Friends of Film group.

Drop by the next meeting to see and discuss the classic film Duck Soup, 1 p.m. Monday, April 18, at the Warrenton Library. The program is free; light snacks and beverages will be provided by the Friends of the Fauquier Library.

Duck Soup is the Marx Brothers’ purest and most insane film. A political satire, it contains some of the brothers’ most famous sequences: the Paul Revere parody, the “We’re Going To War” number, a spoof of 1930s musicals, the mirror scene, and, most famous of all, a final battle episode that has since been copied by everyone from Woody Allen to Mad Magazine.

Call (540) 422-8500, ext. 6862, for more information. See more on upcoming adult programs.
