In arguably the funniest and most irreverent of the Marx Brothers lineup of films, Groucho’s spitfire brand of comedy is at its best when he plays Rufus T. Firefly, a newly appointed leader of the struggling fictional country Freedonia. This satirical take on government and politics, delivers some of the most memorable slapstick moments and scathing one-liners ever put to film by Groucho and his brothers.
