It’s pretty quiet today in LA. So take another Alka Seltzer and rest up for work tomorrow.
Spend New Year’s Day in a dark theatre with a double feature of the Marx Brothers. In the 1933 satire Duck Soup, Groucho plays a newly-appointed prime minister who declares war on a neighboring country for no particular reason. It also marked Zeppo’s last film. Following is1932’s Horse Feathers. Groucho stars as the new president of Huxley College, where his son (played by Zeppo) is “romancing Thelma Todd and Harpo and Chico have to kidnap the star football players from rival Darwin.”
