Review - Horse Feathers

Prof. Wagstaff takes over as president of Huxley College. His son, Frank (the college quarterback), is courting the widow Connie, not realizing that she’s just trying to get the signals. Wagstaff hires Pinky and Baravelli, thinking they’re football players. They try to kidnap two of the opposing players and get locked up instead. They arrive at the big game in the third quarter and manage to win the game with some ridiculous plays involving, among other things, a hot dog vendor and a team of horses pulling a garbage can.

The movie made no sense and was only midly amusing in a few places. I’ve never been a big fan of the Marx Brothers’ movies because they have no plot.
