Episode 041: Early Woody Allen

Updated: May 4, 2021

Woody Allen has averaged a production rate of a movie a year since 1966: in just over five decades, he's made over fifty films. Luckily for us, it's easy to pick out samples, because more than any other popular director, his career is divided into clear tonal sections - so tonight start with the fun stuff: three classics from his slapstick comedies - including What's Up, Tiger Lily, a re-dub of a Japanese B-movie,Bananas, where Woody becomes the leader of a fictional South American country, and his sci-fi comedy masterpiece Sleeper, where he and Diane Keaton join forces to defeat the Orwellian government of 2173!
