Editorial Reviews

You can't always get what you want unless, of course, you've got Alan "Mollymauk" Musgrave on your side! Featuring outstanding performances by Roddy McDowall, Tuesday Weld and a supporting cast that includes Lola Albright, Ruth Gordon and Harvey Korman, this "hilarious" (Variety) satire on teen excesses is "superbly comic" (Los Angeles Times)! With a special gift for manipulating the outcome of any situation, high-minded high schooler Mollymauk (McDowall) sets out to helpbeautiful new girl on campus Barbara Anne (Weld). Trouble is, Barbara Anne wants everything,and Mollymauk's "help" is making a mess out of everyone's livesincluding hers!

Just to see Tuesday Weld (never better!), Roddy McDowall (rarely better)and Ruth Gordon (always wonderful, no matter what she's in) romp through this comic mess is worth the price of the DVD, and then some. I saw this film when it came out in the 60s and didn't like it much, but bought the DVD hoping I might find more in it than I did as a teenager. Turns out I really enjoyed it the second time around. It makes fun of a lot of different things and has an edge about it in the process. School, school administrators, authority figures, parents, shrinks, teenagers, consumerism, fame, dating, social snobism---you name it and it's a target. There are several scenes that are laugh-out-loud funny: Tuesday Weld going out with her father (she lives with her divorced mother), first to a drive-in fast food joint and then on a sweater-buying shopping spree; Harvey Korman in all his scenes. (By the way, what I really find interesting about 60s films is how much people smoked and drank, even in comedies. Lola Albright, very good as Weld's cocktail-waitress mother, just pours herself a stiff one when things get tough. It's almost jarring how that type of on-screen behavior has changed over the last 40 years.) In any event, this is an inconsistent but highly enjoyable film from the "crazy" 60s.

This really is one of those cult comedies that doesn't seem to have enough people singing it's praises. Roddy Mcdowall and Tuesday Weld are marvelous here. Almost everything I've read about it declares it ahead of it's time and I agree 100%. Hats off to George Axelrod for being quite funny and inspiring!

Format: DVD
The only way I can imagine this movie got made was that some Hollywood executive who was completely confused and clueless about what would appeal to younger viewers in the sixties agreed to allow this very strange George Axelrod film to be filmed. In a vague way, it seems almost to be an updating of FAUST, with Roddy McDowell as Alan "Mollymauk" Musgrave playing Mephistopheles to Tuesday Weld's Barbara Ann. Through all manner of devious means Mollymauk brings Barbara Ann's every dream come true.
Viewers are either going to love this or hate it. I showed it to my daughter, and she thought it one of the strangest films she had ever seen. And so it is. It is one of those films, like BEING JOHN MALKOVICH or THE 5,000 FINGERS OF DR. T that seems too off-the-wall for anyone to have agree to finance it.
If you are feeling like something different, and completely unlike anything else you have ever seen, you could do worse than give this film a chance.

Format: VHS Tape
If you haven't seen "Duck", you have no idea what a treat you've missed. This way-ahead-of-its-time, outrageous black comedy has held up amazingly well, despite it being made 35 years ago.
Tuesday Weld (in what is arguably her best performance) plays an "Everygirl" with a somewhat mercenary edge, Roddy McDowell plays her best friend who will do anything to please her-ANYTHING.
The action centers around Consolidated High School in Los Angeles, a school so "progressive" botany is called "Plant Skills"; and where the only way Tuesday Weld can be accepted by the popular girls is by joining something called the "Cashmere Sweater Club"
The movie skewers the youth culture, Southern California, sexuality, teen romance, public education, so effectively and hilariously you would think it was made yesterday. My favorite line: "Honey, in this family, we don't divorce our men, we bury them".

First time I saw this I could hardly believe the many, many visible boom mikes throughout the film. Loved the picture regardless, and now I've come to accept those boom mikes as characters as central to LORD LOVE A DUCK's frazzled beauty as Roddy McDowall & Tuesday Weld, its stars. Most knowledgeable film fans hold 70s films in reverence for their embracing of a deeper, richer reality more inspired by novels than by prior Hollywood films. 60s cinema tends to suffer by comparison: it often seems like a clumsy standoff between the death-throes of the old studios and their formulas, and the insisting beating on the door of a new, artistic, more experimental aesthetic: DUCK is one of those, subverting the soundstage-bound Mickey & Judy cliches by emulating that shot-on-indoor-sets look, with the vital modification of peopling this familiar artifical environment with the hyperAmerican grotesques who routinely populate Geo Axelrod's universe. Thus, like a lot of the best 60s movies, DUCK is part-fish, part-fowl and suffused with an atmosphere of strangeness beyond its subject matter - yet, given how Real Life in that decade similarly swayed on unsteady footing in two seperate realities, it works beautifully. And it definitely doesn't hurt that Tuesday Weld is a goddess of apple-cheeked carnality and conspicuous consumption. She may not be Everywoman exactly, but she IS Everywoman who ever dreamed of marrying Elvis, and that's good enough - like the King, you can't help falling in love with her. As has been noted, the 'cashmere sweater' scene is among the most erotic ever caught on film - unnervingly so, given she's playing the scene with, and for, her father.Read more ›
