Summary After being appointed the dictator of Freedonia, Rufus T. Firefly proceeds to bring the mythical nation to a halt by showing up late and insulting everyone at his inauguration. Hoping to oust the unfit new leader, two spies are sent from the neighboring Sylvania. Soon enough, war is declared between the two nations with outrageous results. Including Groucho's famous mirror scene and final battle scene, it remains as entertaining and relevant today as it did when first released in 1933.
