Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff has just been installed as the new president of Huxley College. His cavalier attitude toward education is not reserved for his son Frank, who is seeing the college widow, Connie Bailey. Frank influences Wagstaff to recruit two football players who hang out in a speakeasy, in order to beat rival school Darwin. Unfortunately, Wagstaff mistakenly hires the misfits Baravelli and Pinky. Finding out that Darwin has beaten him to the "real" players, Wagstaff enlists Baravelli and Pinky to kidnap them, which leads to an anarchic football finale. Written by

Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff (Groucho Marx) is installed as the new president of Huxley College. His son Frank (Zeppo) is a womanizing college man fooling around with college widow Connie Bailey. Frank convinces his father to recruit football players at the speakeasy. Baravelli (Chico) and dogcatcher Pinky (Harpo) are "icemen" who deliver booze. Quincy owes them money and he makes them college men mistaking them for the star players. Connie is actually working for gangsters who are betting against Huxley in the big football game.
Groucho does the verbal and Harpo does the physical. Chico is great. Zeppo is a rather boring straight man. Time spent with him is a waste. He's actually an unnecessary character. This is classic Marx brothers hilarity. I love the guys (minus Zeppo).
