Movie Info

To overcome his shyness, hardware store clerk Christopher Walken gets involved with his local community theatre group. Proving himself a powerful stage presence, Walken is cast as Stanley Kowalski in the group's upcoming production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Still, he remains as bashful as ever offstage-at least until he meets his "Stella", phone-company employe Susan Sarandon. Touchingly adapted from a story by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., the 60-minute Who Am I This Time? was originally an installment of PBS' American Playhouse anthology. It made its debut on February 2, 1982.

Audience Reviews for Who Am I This Time?

Horribly disappointed by this film. I like the idea behind the story (I mean, it came from Kurt Vonnegut for Christ's sake), but I think it's failed in the execution (even more surprising considering it's Demme). When Christopher Walken is on the stage, he is brilliant, but when he is hamming it up as a complete baffoon (he's half retarded) off the stage, it's bad. The most entertaining out of the cast is Robert Ridgely, who most might know for a small part in Boogie Nights and who captures the spirit of a local community theater director well. It's innocent, but also very cheesy and the ending is pure 80's freeze frame bile.
