Mr. Magoo (film) When a stolen and priceless ruby, the Star of Kuristan, lands in the possession of nearsighted millionaire Quincy Magoo, a sinister plot is hatched to steal it back. Perpetually the target of evil culprits, the elderly and bumbling curmudgeon Magoo manages to consistently escape unharmed, totally oblivious to the dangers that surround him.
