Woody Allen SuperStar – MovieActors.com
Woody Allen - Stand-Up Funny ManWoody Allen excelled as Alvy Singer in ANNIE HALL and as Miles Monroe in SLEEPER. Short, ethnic, nervous, and bespectacled, Woody Allen was a truly unusual 1970s icon/sex symbol.
His defining role was as a Jewish comic/writer in ANNIE HALL. Notable films include: SLEEPER, LOVE AND DEATH, PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM, CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, HANNAH AND HER SISTERS, THE CURSE OF THE JADE SCORPION, and HOLLYWOOD ENDING.
Woody Allen was romantically involved with many of his leading ladies, including Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow. Rarely a big money-maker, Allen's usually well-regarded films were the polished gems in studio United Artists crown.
In the later part of his life, the line between Allen's screen character and real self became particularly blurred.
Woody's newest credits include VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, CASSANDRA'S DREAM and SCOOP.
