in 1983, a select few movie patrons got to look in on the life of Leonard Zelig, the chameleon man of the 1920′s. If you were a young person, of college age let’s say, like I was when this film released, you might be hoodwinked into believing this Zelig person actually existed. For a while I did. Once I realized this was a put on – a mockumentary, I settled back and enjoyed the “show.”
It almost makes you wish he did exist.
Here are the first few minutes of the film itself. And yes, it’s available on video and our pick of the week.
