Johnny Twenties (Gibson Frazier) is a man who lives up to his name; from his snazzy suits to his snappy lingo, Johnny is a walking embodiment of the era when liquor was illegal, swing was being born, and the movies were just learning to talk. There's just one problem -- Johnny is living in New York City in the late 1990s, and he seems to have no idea that he's a man out of his era. When not courting his girlfriend Samantha (Susan Egan), who's not sure what to make of her beau's time-warp personality, Johnny does battle with a vicious gangster and his thugs. Man of the Century was written by leading man Gibson Frazier and director Adam Abraham, and features supporting performances from comic/impressionist Frank Gorshin and jazz pianist Bobby Short. The film was shown at the 1999 Slamdance and South by Southwest film festivals.
