Book Vs Movie

Catch Me If You Can

The 1980 nonfiction (ish) book by Frank Abagnale & Stan Redding Vs the 2002 Steven Spielberg Film

The Margos go for the short con here and discuss all things Frank Abagnale, a man who between 16-21 years old was the most competent (and weirdly likable) fraud impersonating a pilot, lawyer, doctor, and teacher before finally getting caught by the FBI. He also cashed fraudulent checks around the U.S. and around the world to the tune of over $2 million.

Frank’s story is incredible and it makes for both a fun read and movie (though we do have a definite preference in this episode!)

The film ultimately adapted by Stephen Spielberg and filmed in over 100 locations in 54 days which is unheard of and adds to the pacing of the movie.  But what changes were made to make Frank’s life seem more “movie-friendly?” Do they add value? What does Frank himself think of Catch Me if You Can? Find out in this episode!

In this ep the Margos discuss :

  • The real story of Frank Abagnale (and what changes that were made for the movie)
  • The likeability of Frank even though he is kind of a skunk
  • The look of the movie
  • The cast of the movie including  Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, and Christopher Walken
  • The Academy Award nominations the film earned

Clips Featured:

  • Frank Abagnale on To Tell the Truth (1977)
  • Catch Me if You Can  trailer
