A sustained stream of lunacy and biting satire in which the leaders of two fictional European countries wage war because they can, this Marx Brothers classic is more successful in showing the senselessness and futility of unbridled conflict than a lot of “serious” films. Certainly the finest of the brothers’ five Paramount Pictures efforts before going to MGM, it contains many memorable set pieces, including the famous “mirror sequence.”
