Screenwriter, actor, comedian, author, playwright and musician Woody Allen turns 77 today. Two very funny men have birthdays today- Woody and Richie Pryor.
Woody Allen continues to make outstanding films but my favourite films of his are from the early part of his career. I’ve always thought “Take The Money And Run” from 1969 is one of the funniest movies ever. My favourite Woody Allen movies in no particular order- Take The Money And Run, Bananas, Play It Again Sam, Sleeper, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Zelig, Hannah And Her Sisters, Bullets Over Broadway, Match Point and Scoop.
His movies have made on average $14 million per film. Allen has been nominated for 23 Academy Awards, winning four times. Even now into his late 70’s he continues to put out a movie every year.
