Horse Feathers

featuring

Groucho Marx, Harpo Marx, Chico Marx, Zeppo Marx, Thelma Todd,

BAMPFA celebrates Homecoming Weekend with this perennial favorite! With Groucho as Professor Wagstaff, the new president of Huxley College, and Zeppo as his son the student, the Marx Brothers deal a devastating blow to higher education. Chico runs a speakeasy, and Harpo won’t speak at all, let alone write term papers, but both are accepted into the student body to promote the university’s primary concern—football. Horse Feathers provides, above all, a gag-a-minute illustration of Groucho’s own, very personal statement of purpose: “Whatever it is, I’m against it.”
