All that stands out in the memory (hey, I'm old) is the viaduct/why-a-duck bit.

It was definitely no DUCK SOUP.

My favorite scene is Harpo chasing one of the chorus girls through the lobby (a stunt to try to fluster Groucho--it didn't work), and then chasing her back through the lobby.

Another historical note--as a dissection of the 1920s Florida land boom-and-bust, the movie does a good job.
