    Running Time: 76 mins

    Release Date:

    A delightful faux-documentary, charting the life of Leonard Zelig (Allen) - an ordinary man with the extraordinary ability to change himself to be more like those around him.
    Leonard Zelig, is a meek and mild character who discovers that he is a human chameleon who can perfectly blend into any situation with anybody. This talent enables him to meet the most of famous of 1920`s society and we see Zelig in shot with such greats as Josephine Baker, William Randolph Hearst, Marion Davies, Al Capone, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Lou Gehrig, `Babe` Ruth and Fanny Brice.

    His talent brings him to the attention of the documentary makers who are making this film, the media and the medical profession where he meets Dr. Eudora Fletcher, the psychiatrist who eventually falls for him.

    This brilliant film is a technical masterpiece that was nominated for two Oscars. It`s an unusual insight into the world of a weak and insignificant individual who would do anything to make those around him like him more...
