December 1 is Woody Allen's Birthday. He will be 78 years old.
I know that general feelings about Allen Konigsberg are mixed. But I love him. I Lurve Him! I really do. I dream about him frequently (What would Freud say?) I have groupie stalkered my way to Michael's Pub to see him play the clarinet with his jazz band. I am first in line when a new Woody Allen film comes out. I once saw him on the street in New York City and my heart started pounding so hard that I felt light-headed.
So in honor of his genius, here is a very abbreviated random slide show of just some of his many brilliant films. He makes a new film just about every year. Amazing!
