Horse Feathers
Director: Norman McLeod
Cast: Groucho Marx, Harpo Marx, Chico Marx, Zeppo Marx, Thelma Todd, Reginald Barlow

The fourth Marx Brothers comedy is one of their best. It's short and hilarious, and it contains some of their most memorable songs, such as "I'm Against It" and "Everyone Says I Love You", the last of which Woody Allen later used in his film with the same name. Groucho plays the president of the Huxley College who resorts to desperate measures to win a football match against a rivalling school. Chico and Harpo are a pair of resourceful misfits who end up playing for the team.
