Horse Feathers

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."
