Description

    Horse Feathers (Paramount, R-1936). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Talk about rare! This reissue card and the two others presented in this auction are something we have never seen before. The Marx Brothers were a great comedy team whose wild antics Paramount just did not seem to know how to market. Though a huge success for the studio at the time of its original release, Paramount dropped the brothers after their next film, Duck Soup, flopped. They were picked up by MGM the year before this re-release and that studio had made them the biggest names in their stable of stars with hits such as Night at the Opera. It seems likely that Paramount wanted to use that popularity to remarket this previous film. This great card features all four brothers in what is the finale of the film, with the brothers careering around the field as Roman charioteers in a horse-drawn garbage cart, finally winning the game between Huxley and Darwin Universities. The card has no restoration and is completely intact with minor staining in the upper white area above photo. The back of the card has tanned. Very Fine.
