Duck Soup/Horse Feathers - 2021 Summer Film Fest July 22, 7:00 pm

The Carolina Theatre Summer Film Festival is back for its 13th year!

Duck Soup
When the tiny nation of Freedonia goes bankrupt, its wealthy benefactor, Mrs. Teasdale, insists that the wacky Rufus T. Firefly become the country's president. Sensing a weakness in leadership, the bordering nation of Sylvania sends in the spies Pinky and Chicolini to set the stage for a revolution. As Firefly clashes with the Sylvanian ambassador, mayhem ensues, and the countries verge on all-out war.

Directed by Leo McCarey. Starring Groucho Marx, Harpo Marx, Chico Marx, Zeppo Marx, and Margaret Dumont. 1933, Not Rated, 1h 9min.

Horse Feathers
The newly minted president of Huxley University is getting pressure from his son to improve the school’s football squad in order to defeat their gridiron rival. But when he recruits the wrong guys, suddenly a pair of bootleggers are wreaking havoc as undergrads. Featuring their trademark insanity, this quintessential Marx Bros. comedy earned a place on the AFI's 100 Years… 100 Laughs list.

Directed by Norman Z. McLeod. Starring Groucho Marx, Chico Marx, Harpo Marx, Zeppo Marx, and Thelma Todd. 1932, Not Rated, 1h 7min.
