Duck Soup and The Great Dictator Movies
Whether successful or not, Duck Soup and The Great Dictator are
comedies with tremendous political and social implications, especially
concerning the times in which they were produced. Some Like It Hot
does the same thing with gender and sexual politics. How do they
compare to the comedies of today that are attempting to put forth
similar messages. What may have contributed to any changes or
consistencies: culturally, politically, socially economically?
