Plot & Details
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.
