Woody Allen

Woody Allen - MovieMonday.com

Woody Allen excelled as Alvy Singer in "Annie Hall" and as Miles Monroe in "Sleeper." Short, ethnic, nervous, and bespectacled, Woody Allen was a truly unusual 1970's icon/sex symbol.

His defining role was as a Jewish comic/writer in "Annie Hall." Notable films include: "Sleeper," "Love & Death," "Play It Again Sam," "Crimes & Misdemeanors," and "Hannah and her Sisters."

Woody Allen was romantically involved with many of his leading ladies, including Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow. Rarely a big moneymaker, Allen's usually well regarded films were the polished gems in studio United Artists crown.

In the later part of his life, the line between Allen's screen character and real self became particularly blurred.

Woody's newest credits include "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion," "Hollywood Ending," "Small Time Crooks," and "Anything Else." More
