Horse Feathers (1932) Easter Egg - Whatever It Is, I'm Against It!
When the new president of Huxley College, Professor Quincy Wagstaff(Groucho) stands to address the welcoming crowd over the microphone there is a gentlemen seated at a typewriter sitting close by his side. The fellow is life long buddy Arthur Sheekman. A comedy writer who is uncredited on "Horse Feathers", but who's work on movie scripts for Groucho and Chico continued on in radio and stage as well. Was this uncredited cameo a credit for the script? Three other writers were mentioned in screen credits for working on HF. It was known to all in production that Groucho detested the other writers. He put his favorite writer in a close shot with him.
Sheekman had written a show business column for the Chicago "Sun-Times". Groucho wrote a guest column and liked Sheekman's style. He invited Sheekman out to Hollywood.
