together, built the wall and staged a feud in order to achieve a

arrives to bring some excitement to the sleepy village, the fathers
persuade a mysterious interloper named El Gallo to stage a mock

brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and a murderous brother
who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice,

Henry Lowenthal, after a long tenure as professor of philosophy at a
small western college, is looking forward to being appointed to an
endowed chair so he and his wife can enjoy their golden years with
honor and dignity. But their plans are given a rude jolt when his
successor, a vindictive and ruthlessly ambitious young woman, informs
him that she is not recommending him for the chair--an act of
calculated cruelty. Will Henry, a gentle professor, fight back? Add a
rather sinister young student who is about to flunk out of school
(unless his grade is changed) and a suspicious police lieutenant. See
how Henry and Socrates decipher the dilemma when faced with actual
murder and Henry under suspicion.
