ZeligDVD - 2001 | Widescreen version
This spoof of documentary films stars Woody Allen as Leonard Zelig, the famous "Chameleon Man" of the 1920's, whose personality was so vague he would assume the characteristics of whomever he came into contact with. Filmed in black-and-white, the movie simulates the look of a newsreel, complete with stentorian narration.

Zelig's tragedy is his tendency to adopt the persona of whomever he is with. Allen's virtuoso performance in such a variety of roles--from a baseball player for the Yankees, to a gangster for Al Capone--should certainly have secured him an Oscar.
