Remembering Leonard Zelig

Friday, September 18th, 2009

in 1983, a select few movie patrons got to look in on the life of Leonard Zelig, the chameleon man of the 1920′s.

Here are the first few minutes of the film itself. And yes, it’s available on video and our pick of the week.

The idea of resurrecting Woodstock in the 1990′s may not have been a very good one, but at least when it got down to the music, some of the artists delivered.  Here, Elvis Costello sings his late 70′s classic, Alison. It’s our pick of the week.
