Hoberman, J.: Duck Soup (BFI Film Classics)
(Category: Books about the Marx Brothers, their films etc.)
From the publisher: "Hoberman's analysis provides a historical and political context as well as an in-depth production history, drawing on primary sources and emphasizing director McCarey's prior work along with the Marx Brothers as well as the situation at Paramount, a substantial synopsis, and an account of the movie's initial reception, concluding with its subsequent elevation to comic masterpiece."
"Hoberman provides a lot of background information. This book may not be for the uninitiated, but for any Marx Brothers fan this is a good read." (ST)
