    Description

    Horse Feathers (Paramount, 1932). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). With the Great Depression raging on across America, the Marx Brothers were at the height of their popularity as they made this, one of their best-known, and most popular, films. Groucho, as Huxley University president Quincy Adams Wagstaff, tries to save the school from bankruptcy by hiring a couple of ringers for the football team, but he ends up with Baravelli, the ice man and local bootlegger (Chico Marx), and Pinky, the dog catcher (Harpo Marx) instead, while son Frank (Zeppo Marx) romances the college widow. The wonderful lobby card offered here has pinholes in the corners, tears in the top and left borders that extend into the image area, and small tears in all the borders. Additionally, the card has been mounted on linen, but no further restorative work has been performed. It is, however, a real gem, which will no doubt be a prized part of any collection. Fine+ on Linen.
