I'm A Fool
Starring: Ron Howard, and Amy Irving
Traveling from town to town during the summer of 1919, young Andy (Ron Howard) has left his Ohio home in search of adventure and romance as a horse trainer on the country fair racing circuit.
More than a little "wet behind the ears" Andy learns a bittersweet lesson about life when he meets Lucy (Amy Irving) the girl of his dreams at the race track one day. Ashamed of his occupation, Andy leads Lucy to believe he's wealthy. Soon one lie leads to another until there is no way to tell Lucy the truth.
The irony of the story is that Lucy and Andy have fallen deeply in love. As Andy dejectedly admits on his way out of town, all is lost because "I'm A FOOL."
