KIRKUS REVIEW

From a not too prepossessing start, this develops into a gentle comedy of what happens when an American advertising man, on the verge of achieving the success he has always sought, meets a leprechaun in Ireland. Fitzgerald has more than his share of luck in his career because of his kindness to Horace, but Horace follows benefactor to America and proceeds to work things out the way he knows is best for Fitzgerald- upsets Fitzgerald's fiancee- causes him to sell his house in Connecticut produces the girl from Ireland and wakes Fitzgerald up to the phony values he has been pursuing. Some digs at American standards and practices keep up the tone of quiet satire and blended entertainment.
