Read full description of the books:
My earliest familiarity with Woody Allen is the voice of Z in the animated classic, Antz (1998). More recently, I watched Magic in the Moonlight (2014) and Irrational Man (2015) because I think Emily Stone is brilliant and ravishing. I had never seen Annie Hall (1977), Interiors (1978), Manhattan (1979), or Stardust Memories (1980) before reading this screenplay collection.
Woody Allen was rejected from both New York University and City College. He wrote his first screenplay in 1964 and has written both screenplays and Broadway plays.
It is interesting to note that Annie Hall and Manhattan are both significantly “fresher” on Rotten Tomatoes and were both writing collaborations with Marshall Brickman.
Woody Allen’s screenwriting in this collection has a good sense of humor and breaks the fourth wall on numerous occasions. Allen uses TONS of “gesturing” and “overlapping” dialogue. His camera directions are often very specific and he uses white-lettered credits.
"The italicized passages that describe the action have been provided by the publisher."
The screenplay of STARDUST MEMORIES was my favorite to read and also had the most descriptive language. Often times characters “stare off into space” and the film borrows from “nineteen-fortyish” styles. Stylistically, light and silhouettes are also played with.
“SANDY (His silhouette gesturing) This was not easy, folks, because, uh, you know, I-I-I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, and I don’t have a good voice for God.” (371)
“It’s amazing Rash. From this he makes a living? I like a melodrama, a musical comedy with a plot.” (378)
