    Annie Hall, but I do have a soft spot for Broadway Danny Rose.

    I like them all. Husbands and Wives is really great. Annie Hall, Radio Days, and he's still got it...Recently, Match Point and Midnight in Paris were terrific.

    I like Annie Hall, but I also love Love and Death, or Take the Money and Run.

    As a sleeper film, I'd choose Purple Rose of Cairo. It's a great pic. I could watch it a million times and never get tired of it.

    Speaking of sleeper films, Sleeper was great as well.

    Radio Days has sentimental value for me, I saw it for my first "real" date.

    I think Hannah and Her Sisters & Crimes and Misdemeanors are Allen's two best films, though I haven't seen any of his recent work. Both pictures focus on the director's two obsessions, the meaning of life and the meaning of film.

    Annie Hall, 1977. Directed by, and starring, Woody Allen.

    Academy Awards:
    Best Picture
    Best Director - Woody Allen
    Best Actress - Diane Keaton
    Best Original Screenplay - Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman
    Nominated Best Actor - Woody Allen

    Alvy Singer: [addressing the camera] - There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly. The... the other important joke, for me, is one that's usually attributed to Groucho Marx; but, I think it appears originally in Freud's "Wit and Its Relation to the Unconscious," and it goes like this - I'm paraphrasing - um, "I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member." That's the key joke of my adult life, in terms of my relationships with women.

    I used to use the same quote, taken from Groucho, that's paraphrased by Alvy Singer (Woody) in Annie Hall. "I would never belong to a (fill in the blank) that would have me as a member." I especially liked using it when someone asked me my religion. When I saw Annie Hall and Allen using basically the same quote, it was a real trip.

    I'm thinking Hannah and Her Sisters but only because of Dianne Wiest. Also liked Celebrity. Melinda and Melinda wasn't great; but I liked the cast and romantic comedies are so bad nowadays - they kind of used to be the only "mature" option - you just give something like that a chance.

    I love so many of them. Take the Money and Run, Mighty Aphrodite, and A Mid-Summer's Night Sex Comedy are favorites.

    I really like Woody Allen movies, but when it's been awhile, they tend to bleed together. Two I remember liking not mentioned here: Another Woman and Zelig.
