Here’s my first review for the Timely Blogathon for movies 90 minutes or less, hosted by MovieRob and Anna of Film Grimoire. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup really is the hilarious classic it’s hailed as.


This post is the next entry in this month’s A Timely Blogathon being run by Anna of Film Grimoire and myself.  This review of Duck Soup (1933) is by S.G. of Rhyme and Reason

Check out her site which is filled with recipes, podcasts and movie reviews galore!
