Horse Feathers (1932)
In 1932, Groucho Marx is in a canoe, being courted by Connie Bailey. He observes, "Professor Wagstaff: You know, this is the first time I've been out in a canoe since I saw The American Tragedy."
Betty's version of "Ev'ry One Says I Love You" is yet another version of the song introduced by The Marx Brothers in the earlier film--also released by Paramount Pictures.
Groucho reminisces over the first five Marx Brothers films, which he said were produced by Jesse L. Lasky.

When Roger gives a $5 bill to the bouncer (at what turns out to be a casino) he says "Swordfish." This is a reference to the scene in Horse Feathers (1932) between Groucho and Chico Marx where Chico is the temporary bouncer at a speakeasy and Groucho uses the correct password "Swordfish" after Chico blabbed it to him.
The herbs in the film are named after the Marx Brothers and, at one point, Si quotes directly from this film.
