Reviews
Mine: Maybe Woody best film (I am not a fan). Great performances all around. Funny with a serious question; "Which is more imortant, great art or a human life".
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Delightful Woody Allen bauble about a self-serious 1920s playwright who quickly sells out when he's offered a chance to direct his latest work on Broadway--with a gangster's moll in a key role, and an intoxicatingly seductive star in the lead. An actors' field day, with particularly juicy parts for Wiest, as the flamboyant actress, Palminteri, as a thug with an unexpected gift, and Tilly as the ditsy moll. Wiest won an Oscar, though all three were nominated. The period detail is so rich and right it all seems stunningly real. Allen coscripted with Douglas McGrath.
