About The Great Imposter

Film Summary

From 1979 to 1986, Barry Bremen, a Detroit-area novelty goods salesman, became known in the sports world as The Great Imposter. Playfully seeking the spotlight, Bremen posed as a player in the Major Leagues and NBA, PGA golfer, NFL and NHL referee, and even Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. In doing so Bremen not only became known as sports ultimate fan but also managed to live out the dreams of legions of failed high school all-stars and armchair quarterbacks across the nation. "The Great Imposter" will not only offer humorous insight into Barry's on-the-field antics, but also delve in his heart and mind. What made the man tick? What drove and motivated him to go to such lengths?
