Margaret Dumont appoints Groucho (Rufus T. Firefly) as Prime Minister of Freedonia, and he promptly declares war on a neighboring country for no particular reason in DUCK SOUP; it's followed by MONKEY BUSINESS, the Marx Brothers' first original screenplay - and their most bizarre!
A film series featuring the greatest car chases in cinema history begins with Dan Gilroy in person with the recent NIGHTCRAWLER.
