    Horse Feathers (Paramount, 1932). Window Card (14" X 22").
    Making only its second Heritage appearance in a decade, this elusive window card is a significant find for devoted Marx Brothers collectors. Groucho 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. Featuring four of the Marx Brothers (Gummo did not appear in any films, Zeppo only in five) in astonishingly bright color for a poster its age, this window card will be the pride of any collection. There are staple holes in the corners and left and right border, a small surface abrasion just above Harpo, corners bends at the bottom, creasing along the bottom border slightly into the background, a small tear in the right border, and two small creases in the interior. There was a horizontal fold in the top imprint area at one time. Very Fine-
