Hackenbush - MD , PhD , RFD , MC , PDQ , BYOD and one of the above - dispensing horse pills and quips with equal glee. Chico , Harpo and favorite foil Margaret Dumon join the fun of throughly thoroughbred comedy . Enjoy tootsie-frootsie ice cream , Dumont's medical exam , Harpo's pretty girl pantomime sketch , wallpaper wackies and wall-to-wall hilarity the marx way

The best Marx Brother film in my opinion.
Margaret Dumont is a hypochondriac hotel owner. Wanting a second opinion on an ailment prompts the entrance of Dr Hackenbush (Groucho) , who unbeknown to her is a vet.
The Bros get together to stop the baddies wrestling the hotel from Margaret Dumont. Some classic set pieces, like Chico selling form books for the horses to the lunatic Hackenbush from an ice cream cart, getta your ice cream. Plus the boys washing up for a medical exam and riding out on a horse, among many more.
