Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby, who receive story credit on Duck Soup as well as Animal Crackers and Horse Feathers, were best known as a songwriting team responsible for such songs as “Who’s Sorry Now?”, “I Wanna Be Loved by You”, “I Love You So Much”, “Nevertheless” and “A Kiss to Build a Dream On”. They were portrayed by Fred Astaire and Red Skelton in the 1950 musical biography named after their biggest hit song, Three Little Words.
Take two turkeys, one goose, four cabbages, but no duck, and mix them together. After one taste, you’ll duck soup the rest of your life.
