A behind-the-scenes clip of me discussing a deal. This and more are included in the Netflix release of “Chameleon Street”, a film I produced.
“Chameleon Street” won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival.
It is an independent film written by, directed by and starring Wendell B. Harris, Jr.. It tells the story of a social chameleon who impersonates reporters, doctors and lawyers in order to make money.
The film is a satire based on the life of Detroit con artist and high-school drop-out William Douglas Street, Jr., who successfully impersonated professional reporters, lawyers, athletes, extortionists, and surgeons, going so far as to perform more than 36 successful hysterectomies.
A Sundance Film Festival press release in 2008 described it as "one of the first films to examine how mellifluously race, class, and role-playing morph into the social fabric of America."
