| I'm a Fool -- Watch It!
A virtually untapped source of dramatic material is the body of work by Sherwood Anderson. "I'm a Fool" is the ONLY Anderson work ever turned into film. His novel "Kit Brandon" was optioned but never made it to the screen. As Henry Fonda refers to Anderson's work in the introduction, this "sketch" is just that, as a story and as a short film. Being produced on a low budget, the film is kept simple and definitely not over-produced. The cast and portrayal of turn-of-the-century life in "I'm a Fool" are phenomenal for a low-budget film: Ron Howard, Amy Irving, and the late Santiago Gonzalez. Being a native Ohioan, I was only disappointed that "Cedar Point" was called "Cedar Lake" in the film. All else is true to form. Sherwood Anderson would be proud.
