I read the book The Man with a Thousand Faces in grade 7 (later made into a TV series which is also loosely based on the book) so I couldn't watch Leonardo D Capria playing Frank W Abignail Jr. He makes it very clear in real life that he was able to get away with what he did because he was 16 and looked like he was 26.

I am curious if in the movie they showed the 6 months he spent in an unlit French dungeon prison where they once didn't change his bucket for a week or the spa treatment he got in Sweden?

Frank would go on to help rewrite most of the standards used to catch fraudulant cheque cashers until the computer era. It takes a thief…
