    Woody Allen
    Heywood Woody Allen born Allan Stewart Konigsberg is a three time Academy Award winning American film director, writer, actor, jazz musician, comedian and playwright His large body of work and cerebral film style, mixing satire, wit and humor, have made him one of the most respected and prolific filmmakers in the modern era Allen writes and directs his movies and has also acted in the majority of them For inspiration, Allen draws heavily on literature, philosophy, psychology, Judaism, European cinema and New York City, where he was born and has lived his entire life.


    I have read and reread these movies before actually watching them In Athens during the eighties of my adolescence, I had a copy of this book but I had no access to the films themselves. I managed to watch them much later, as a student in France. "Manhattan", I have first watched it in the cinematheque de Nice, dubbed in French! Βυt I knew the script by heart by then. Woody Allen's movies is one reason why life is worth living

    Woody Allen's screenplays read like his New Yorker short stories only formatted differently, so, no complaints. However, if you're studying screenplays in order to produce your own, Mr. Allen's scripts might not be the best place to go to first, for he knows he's going to be directing his stories so the screenplays are filled with descriptions and suggestions for camera work. Nevertheless, this collection is beautiful and for some reason made me admire "Stardust Memories" more.

    A master!

    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 writt [...]

    For anyone who is interested about how great screenplay's are written you can look no further then Woody Allen screenplay's. A master of natural dialogue mechanics.

    There should be little doubt that Woody Allen, more than a competent director, is brilliant writer of comedy. The scripts from "Manhattan" and "Annie Hall", included in this collection, are the living proof of his genius. Despite having seen both movies hundreds of times, I enjoyed reading these scripts immensely. There is so much great witty dialogue and laugh out loud remarks about relationships or society in general. Really perfect writing. The collection falls short of greatness (in my view) [...]

    This collection includes the screenplays for two of Woody Allen’s most loved films (Annie Hall and Manhattan) as well as screenplays for two of his least liked films (Interiors and Stardust Memories). The scripts for Annie Hall and Manhattan are extremely well-written and laugh-out loud funny. They represent Woody’s golden era; the closest he ever came to rivaling his success in the late 70s was with Hannah and Her Sisters and Crimes and Misdemeanors in the 80s. I also enjoyed reading Stardu [...]

    This book has the scripts for Woody Allen's films from 1977-1980. This isn't the shooting screenplay; it is a transcription of the spoken words with the action added in italics. It's still a good read, though. Annie Hall and Manhattan are two of Allen's most praised films, for good reason. Interiors, the only one in this collection which I've never seen, seems heavily influenced by Bergman. And Stardust Memories, which comes across like a mixture of Fellini and Allen's style, was the best read o [...]

    Melissa's influence again. See: choosing your college roommate is important, folks. Don't share space with someone who can't broaden your horizons. I read all of her copies of Allen's scripts because they were there, and I was majoring in theater. I don't know when I finally realized that the scripts were more transcripts, and that the dialogue was improv.

    An exquisite collection of transcripts of four of the greatest (if not the four greatest) Allen movies.Worth reading not just out of interest in screenwriting (though these are not the actual scripts but transcripts, they're very useful to get the structure of the films down): it's actually gripping, and reads like novels.

    Indraneel Sur
    The book contains four transcripts of the films, not original screenplays (the descriptions of the actions on screen are said to have been supplied by the publisher). But the films themselves are such fresh and insightful works that just having the dialogue transcript is sufficient to entertain.

    Good, neurotic American humor.

    If you want to become a film writer, I would suggest reading this, NOW!

    a great collection of transcripts of probably woody allen's best movies. definitely worth reading.
