Storyline

In Dublin, a working class family has been unsuccessful in convincing their son to get a real job: the son prefers his job of scooping up horse's dung and selling it for flower gardens. An American exchange student almost runs him over and gets to know him. The dung man has ignored warnings from his family and suddenly the horses have been banned from Dublin. His new love is leaving for America and he must find a way to cope with the new reality. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Sweet surprise
13 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like another writer said, this was showing as second in a double bill, in 1976 -- but I can't remember the name of the movie my friends and I went to see and stayed for this one, too. Yet I sure remember "Quackser Fortune." I barely knew anything about Gene Wilder at the time, though I had seen Young Frankenstein, and he was entirely believable in the role. It was funny, a little sad, yes, formulaic, but with a pleasantly surprising ending. What I remember best was the interplay between Quackser and his family as he gains a dawning understanding of the world around him, including the charms of a woman. Quackser owns no comb, and must use a toothbrush to primp for his first date. And his manure merchandising around Dublin, calling "Git yer sh --!" was hysterical. I've been to Ireland since, read extensively about the Irish people, and would love to see this one again -- but have yet to see it on HE (How about "aitch-ee" for a new acronym to take in both video and DVD? Quackser would approve -- he was a forward, yet pragmatic, sort of guy.) -- knr
