Synopsis

I'm a Fool
Based on a short story by Sherwood Anderson, I'm a Fool stars Ron Howard as a 1920s race-track groom. Told in bittersweet flashbacks, the story relates Howard's attempts to impress pretty debutante Amy Irving by pretending to be rich. If only he'd just been "himself"...but by the time he realizes this, it's too late. Previous adaptations of the Anderson story have included a 1954 GE Theatre half-hour starring James Dean. Shown in tandem with a dramatization of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Bernice Bobs Her Hair, the Ron Howard version of I'm a Fool was first telecast April 5, 1977, on PBS' American Short Story series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
