When this was run last year, I wrote: ” In one of their most anarchic films, Horse Feathers (1932), the Marx Brothers take on higher learning—and higher learning loses. Here’s the idea: Groucho has become (through goodness-knows-what process) the president of Huxley College, despite making sport of his predecessor and the entire faculty, even singing a song where he tells them not to bother making suggestions, ‘Whatever it is, I’m against it.’ His son (Zeppo) is a student at said college, and he convinces his father to hire professional football players to bolster the school’s perpetually losing team.” Full review here: http://www.mountainx.com/movies/review/horse_feathers
In Brief: The Four Marx Brothers descend upon Huxley College where Groucho has mystifyingly become president. Before they’re through with it, it’s safe to say that college, football and the institution of marriage will never be the same. In the running for the boys’ very best film.
