Hail! Hail Freedonia! In this satire of war and politics, Groucho Marx plays Rufus T Firefly, leader of the country Freedonia, aided by Harpo, Chico and Zeppo Marx. Margaret Dumont, the ever-present society dowager tries to keep her country out of war but to no avail and Freedonia goes to war gleefully in one of the most surreal and absurd production numbers ever filmed. The film is also noted for the famous “mirror gag” and the wildly anarchic final battle scene.
