Crusoe: 1983

A clown-esque economic unraveling of Defoe's novel where Friday is a pilot who crash lands on Crusoe's island and becomes the famous character's servant through verbal and intellectual sparing. Until one day that is, when Friday working in the fields, happens to find gold on the island.
