  • Overview
  • Details
Groucho Marx stars as Prof. Quincy Adams Wagstaff, who's appointed head of Huxley College in this laugh riot that does to academe's ivy-covered halls what Duck Soup inflicted on military-minded hawks. Most of the fast-flying action centers on the big football game with rival Darwin College. When Groucho mistakes brothers Chico and Harpo for gridiron ringers and then hires them to kidnap the real athletes, you can imagine the mayhem.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that kids will be exposed to a fair bit of sexual double entendre. Much of it will go over the heads of younger children. African Americans in the movie are all servants and women are scheming and sexually manipulative.

Sexual Content

This is pre-code 1930s Hollywood, and there's a fair bit of sexual double entendre. Much of it will go over the head of younger children.

Social Behavior

Everything is played for humor, sometimes at someone's expense. For example, as the College Widow attempts to work her wiles, Groucho says that he will "kick all her teeth right down her throat" -- definitely a quip from another age.
