He's no Gentleman . . . He's a Politician!

Mavourneen is an Irish Gaelic word meaning 'My Beloved' and the song Kathleen Mavourneen was written in 1837 and became very popular during the American Civil War. In this story about the song Terry, played by Charles Delaney, is a young Irish plumber in New York City who goes to Ellis Island with young Katie O'Connor's Aunt and Uncle to welcome Kathleen to America. Once she is settled into the apartment with her aunt and uncle they throw a party with all their Irish neighbors for Kathleen, and we see a budding romance between plumber Terry and pretty, young Kathleen. But trouble is on the horizon as Ward Boss Dan Moriarity, played by Robert Elliott, drops in for a visit. As soon as he spots young Kathleen he is love-struck for her and becomes determined to make her his own. Kathleen asks to be introduced to the gentleman and Terry quickly retorts that he is no gentleman, he is a politician. Kathleen innocently asks what a 'politician' is, not knowing the word. Plumber Terry sadly knows that he cannot compete with the wealthy and powerful politician, and sure enough, at a party in her honor the wealthy politician asks Kathleen to marry him, and Katie says . . . . well . . . I just cannot tell you what she says . . . not because I don't want to, but because from this point on the story takes a unique and very inventive path - one that I never saw coming, and one that I don't want to give away. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it and enjoy a beautiful Irish love story.
