Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx
In working-class Dublin, the factories provide a meager income -- though not for Quackser Fortune (Gene Wilder), whose chosen career is collecting horse manure and selling it as fertilizer. But the days of horse-drawn buggies are numbered, and his old-fashioned career is threatened. Then an American exchange student (Margot Kidder) almost runs him over, and Quackser falls headlong in love. When the girl returns home, Quackser decides to follow her, headed for the Bronx.
