The newly appointed President of Huxley College, Prof. Quincy Adams Wagstaff, addresses the primary problem with the education offered by the school: Huxley has not won a football game since the 1880s. Wagstaff hires Harpo, a dog catcher and Chico, an iceman, onto the team in hopes of defeating rival Darwin University. The Marx Brothers in their element.
