Audience Reviews for I'm a Fool

½

A early James Dean appearance. Quality yet slow paced romance drama and stage play, that will seem strange. Its not weird, it's real drama. Sherwood Anderson's play The Fool showcases James Dean as he was just discovered by America. No less a host who creams over Dean's performance is Ronnie Rayguns (Regan), our "famous" or infamous ex-president.

A black and white stage play made for TV in the early 1950's. For all you Dean lovers and fans. You won't find a more rare whole film of Dean than this in his very early career.

Nothing great or deep but a good little feature with some nice talent. 2 Though, personally, I feel the picture quality is a little lacking, it's fun seeing these people appear on 1950s television. Also unusual for showing James Dean smoking a cigar. [img]http://i.ytimg.com/vi/TncatjM72YM/0.jpg[/img] NOTES: 1 Original air date: 14 November 1953. Less than two years later, (September 30 1955), James Deane will die in a terrible car accident at 24. 2 In 1977, Noel Black made a 38-minute movie based on Anderson's story keeping its title i.e. "I'm a Fool". In this movie, Ron Howard starred as the groom and Amy Irving played the role of the pretty girl Miss Lucy Wessen. 3 "I'm a Fool" is a short story by American writer Sherwood Anderson. It was first published in the February 1922 issue of The Dial, (followed the next month by the London Mercury) and later, in 1923 as the first story in Anderson's short story collection Horses and Men. Of that collection, William Faulkner wrote that "...I think, next to Heart of Darkness by Conrad that the first story, "I'm a Fool," is the best short story I ever read".
