The classic Marx Brothers comedy “Duck Soup” was released 85 years ago today on November 17th, 1933. It is considered by many to be the best of all the Marx Brothers films.
Here’s a classic clip from the movie:
85 years ago today, on November 8th, 1933, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt launched the Civil Works Administration. The CWA initiative was created to get people back to work during the Great Depression. It was a short lived job program which succeeded in employing millions in manual labor to stir the struggling American economy.
We’ll be happy to take anything remotely civil these days…
