Approx. 68 min. DCP.

“Whatever it is, I’m against it!” declares Groucho’s Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff, new president of Huxley College — as speakeasy-recruited football ringers Chico and Harpo re-write the rulebook to help win The Big Game.


“Groucho's characteristic corkscrew humor, Chico's distortions of English and Harpo's pantomime aroused riotous laughter!”
– Mordaunt Hall, The New York Times (1932)

“...packed with brilliant, logic-chopping dialogue and surreal visual gags.”
 – Philip French, The Guardian
