Horse Feathers

It's Darwin versus Huxley, but in the world of the Marx Brothers, man descends on a fireman's pole. This 1932 release was the first Marx film to take on the Depression, and the brothers manage to satirize everything from education to prostitution and bootlegging. “Whatever it is,” Groucho cries, “I'm against it”—which undoubtedly includes “college widow” Thelma Todd. Directed by Norman Z. McLeod.
