catch him if you can

Stanley Clifford Weyman (1890-1960) impersonated a US consul representative to Morocco, a military attaché from Serbia and a US Navy lieutenant, the consul general for Romania, a lieutenant in the Army Air Corps, a doctor in Lima, Peru, a State Department Naval Liaison Officer, a Secretary of State, the personal physician of Rudolph Valentino's widow, and other characters. "One man's life is a boring thing," Weyman said. "I lived many lives. I'm never bored."
