Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Woody Allen...

Woody Allen: A Documentary airs tonight at 9 on PBS. As a neurotic woman who may very well have a brain tumor (or maybe my headband is too tight), I couldn't be more excited. He's my favorite American film director. 
"American Masters – Woody Allen: A Documentary chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen’s career: from his work in the 1950s-60s as a TV scribe for Sid Caesar, standup comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years. Weide covers Allen’s earliest film work in Take the Money and Run, Bananas, Sleeper, and Love and Death; frequent Oscar favorites such as Annie HallManhattanZeligBroadway Danny RoseCrimes and Misdemeanors, Husbands & Wives, Bullets Over Broadway, 
Purple Rose of Cairo, and Mighty Aphrodite; and his recent globetrotting phase with Match PointVicky Christina Barcelona, and this year’s box office smash Midnight in Paris."  -PBS Online
