Misbehaviors, (According to,) Who Hasn't, (Everyone)
Woody Allen writes on the same typewriter he's owned since he was eleven. By the time he was seventeen he was making more money than his parents, writing jokes for newspapers. When he needs to cut and paste he uses a scissors and a stapler. Every Monday night he plays clarinet at a club. When Annie Hall won 4 Oscars, Woody Allen wasn't there because he was playing clarinet at the club. He was so ashamed of Manhattan that he offered to pay the studio not to release it. Larry David saw Take the Money and Run during army boot camp and thought it was the funniest thing he had ever seen. Woody Allen's mother wears bright red lipstick and tells her son, if only she hadn't been so strict with him, maybe he would be a little (and here, she searches for the right word) softer. When he first started performing standup, he would get so nervous he would vomit. Stardust Memories is his favorite of his films. When it came out, following the wild success of Manhattan, the critics panned it. You thought you had seen every Woody Allen movie. But you've never even heard of Stardust Memories. You check it out of the library and watch it, engrossed, loving every moment. Your husband falls asleep on the couch halfway through. Whenever you watch a Woody Allen movie with him, (or whenever you mention Woody Allen to anyone for that matter), he (they) always says (say) the same thing. He married his step-daughter. They can't get over it. You, on the other hand, don't particularly care. You love his movies, though not especially the early funny ones.
