1 review about Horse Feathers

The Marx Brothers go back to school.

Horse Feathers was the third feature by the four Marx Brothers. This time around, Groucho stars as the head of a small college that's engaged with a football rivalry with a nearby school. His son (Zeppo) is having love problems whilst two local hoodlums (Chico and Harpo) wind up helping Groucho's team out just in time for the big game. The movie is padded out with several boring musical numbers (even Groucho makes note of it during one of them). Can Zeppo find true love? Will Groucho's school win the rivalry? Can Chico and Harpo become big time college football stars? You'll have to find out when you watch Horse Feathers!

A very funny film (despite the musical numbers). The best scenes are the one in the speakeasy and the big game. The four brothers made up the best version of the Marx Brothers (I know most people liked the trio but I prefer the quartet). An entertaining film but not as great as their classic film Duck Soup!

This was my favorite Marx Brothers film. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Professor Wagstaff gets the ball!

I'm more of a DUCK SOUP person myself. "Hail, hail Freedonia!"
