    Description

    Horse Feathers (Paramount, 1932). Fine on Linen. Autographed Three Sheet (41" X 80.5"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Groucho Marx is cast as Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff, the new president of Huxley College. The down and out college hasn't won a football game in over forty years and Professor Wagstaff has an idea on how to turn things around. After conferring with son Frank (Zeppo Marx), who has been a student at Huxley for twelve years, he goes out to recruit two hot shot football players at the local speakeasy, but instead ends up signing Baravelli (Chico Marx) the ice man, and Pinky (Harpo Marx) the dog catcher. With a little luck, and a lot of cheating, the gang manages to pull off a victory against rival Darwin College in the big Thanksgiving Day football game. Signed and inscribed by Groucho, this rare three sheet has benefitted from restoration to edge and fold wear, fold and misfold separations, pinholes, and large tears, one of which extended in to the "m" and "a" of "Marx." Also corrected was chipping and paper loss at the edges and folds. The borders and most of the white background have been airbrushed. Here's a chance at a very rare Marx Brothers item!
