  • Need Help With Some Movie Trivia

    This is not earth shattering but you would help two people sleep better because this is really beginning to bug us ...

    We're trying to identify the movie where the lead character pretends to be a doctor, lawyer, indian chief, etc. in order to obtain status (and especially more dates) but finds out that the new personna isn't what it's cracked up to be and goes back to being himself - boring but wiser.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Catch Me If You Can, minus the indian chief.

      Can you tell us a little more about the genre? Is it an older film, or more recent? Do you remember anything else about the movie?

        Was it The Great Imposter, a Tony Curtis flick from '61?

        Heh... looking at the dates, I'm wondering if Frank Abagnales was inspired by this.

          It wasn't Catch Me If You Can but thanks for the reply.

          No, it's an older film about how the job, no matter how glamorous, doesn't guarantee happiness - it has to come from within. We can "see" the lead characters in our heads but the names won't come to us.

          And we thought we were good movie buffs ...

            For some reason it's ringing a dim bell as a 70s made-for-TV movie, but it's not coming to me right now.
