FROM THIS EPISODE

Some are born liars, some achieve lying and some have lying thrust upon them. In this program, three stories, one from each category of deception. In one, an ex-con turned actor convinces a small town to invest in a movie he's making. In another, a high-powered black attorney joins the exclusive Greenwich Country Club the only way he can, by joining the kitchen staff as a busboy. Plus, a story by David Sedaris, on being mistaken for a smelly French pickpocket on the Paris Subway.
