** The playbook, which Darwin College wants to steal, because they really want to win a football game for some reason. These are the kinds of details that don't matter in a Creator/MarxBrothers movie.

** The playbook, which Darwin College wants to steal, because they really want to win a football game for some reason. It's even more baffling since the film clearly establishes that Huxley is a terrible team that any competent rival could easily beat without cheating. These are the kinds of details that don't matter in a Creator/MarxBrothers movie.

''Horse Feathers'' is the fourth Creator/MarxBrothers film, and arguably [[GrowingTheBeard their first classic]]. Groucho Marx plays the incoming president of Huxley College, Quincy Adams Wagstaff, while his son Frank (Zeppo Marx) divides his time between attending classes and wooing Connie Bailey (Thelma Todd), the local CollegeWidow. To turn around the school's declining fortunes, President Wagstaff tries to recruit two star football players from a local Speakeasy, but ends up signing the stockboy Baravelli (Chico Marx) and dog-catcher Pinkie (Harpo Marx) instead. Now they have to win an upcoming football game against the rival school, Darwin, who have hired pro ballers as ringers posing as students and recruited Bailey to retrieve the [[McGuffin secret Huxley playbook]].

* GretzkyHasTheBall: Done deliberately, as there is no way anybody could possibly think that the referee would let somebody ride down the field in a chariot and use every spare football in it as a separate touchdown, no matter how much bribery was involved. Also, Huxley College received a kick-off from rival Darwin after scoring a touchdown, as opposed to kicking off to Darwin.[[note]]This is actually a bit of TruthInTelevision, since some college all-star games used to do this to make the contests more competitive.[[/note]]
