The West Orange Film Society hosts the 15th annual West Orange Classic Film Festival.
Held over eight Sundays throughout January and February in the town where Thomas Edison invented movies, the West Orange Classic Film Festival returns for its fifteenth season, once again giving lovers of cinema a chance to experience their favorite films as they were meant to be seen-on the big screen. This year’s festival looks back at highlights of their first decade and a half, with each film followed by a discussion led by a local film scholar/critic. Three of the feature length films to be presented won the Academy Award for Best Picture for the year of their release, and were selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant".
“Duck Soup” (1933), with David Itzkoff, culture reporter for The New York Times.
Starring what were then billed as the "Four Marx Brothers" (Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo), the film also features Margaret Dumont, Louis Calhern, Raquel Torres, and Edgar Kennedy. It was the last Marx Brothers film to feature Zeppo, “Duck Soup” is widely considered among critics to be a masterpiece of comedy, and the Marx Brothers' finest film.
