I came across the end of a film last Friday as I channeled surfed. It had
the characters of the film tell the parable of the frog and the scorpion
behind the closing credits. Title: "Chamelion Street" (1989)--"William B.
Harris Jr., Angela Leslie. An astonishing, master impersonator, from fact.
Consistently intriguing. (R)" From the little bit I saw, the main
character is a black con man of some sort. Given the date, this would
precede "The Crying Game."
