We're back at Innis Town Hall for another round of Free Friday Films: Winter Edition.
To ring in the new year, we will be screening a double bill starting with the four Marx brothers in DUCK SOUP and followed by Mae West in I'M NO ANGEL.
Here's a synopsis for each film…
Duck Soup (1933): "Duck Soup" stars Groucho as Rufus T. Firefly, who becomes dictator of Fredonia under the sponsorship of the rich Mrs. Teasdale (Margaret Dumont, the brothers' tireless and irreplaceable foil). Neighboring Sylvania and its Ambassador Trintino (Louis Calhern) have designs on the country, and Trintino hires Harpo and Chico as spies.
I'm No Angel (1933): The bold Tira (Mae West) works as dancing beauty and lion tamer at a fair. Out of an urgent need of money, she agrees to a risky new number: putting her head into a lion's muzzle! With this attraction the circus makes it to New York and Tira can persue her dearest occupation: flirting with rich men and accepting expensive presents. Among the guys she searches the love of her life, from whom she only knows from a fortune-teller that he'll be rich and have black hair. When she finally meets him, she becomes a victim of intrigue.
