ANNIE HALL 1977 93 MIN 35MM Rated PG

DIR: Woody Allen SCR: Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman
CAST: Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts, Carol Kane, Paul Simon, Shelley Duvall and Christopher Walken

Woody Allen stars as neurotic comedian Alvy Singer with Diane Keaton as neurotic menswear-wearing nightclub singer Annie Hall, with whom he falls in love. It is the defining relationship of Singer's life, and so when their relationship ends he is thrust into a state of self-analysis that Allen exploits to great comedic effect as Singer tries to figure out where their love went wrong. Allen incorporates flashbacks, elements of fantasy and breaks the fourth wall as he delves into the recesses of Singer's heartbreak. Marshall McLuhan, Paul Simon, Carol Kane, Christopher Walken, Shelley Duvall and Truman Capote all make memorable appearances but Allen and Keaton are an unexpected and extraordinary pairing. ANNIE HALL won four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress for Diane Keaton.
