RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 52410764 LA English T1 Woody Allen : a life in film A1 Schickel, Richard., PB Ivan R. Dee PP Chicago YR 2003 SN 1566635284 9781566635288 1566636027 9781566636025 AB "Woody Allen is a private person who talks about his work infrequently. So it was unprecedented when he recently spoke to the camera about the entire range of his work in an interview with Richard Schickel. Woody talked about how he makes films, why he does it, the roots of this passion in his early life, and his current thinking about the state of his art." "The result was a critically acclaimed program for Turner Classic Movies. But the presentation contained only a small fraction of the four-hour interview. This book reprints the complete conversation between the two men and includes a long essay of introduction by Richard Schickel, which places Woody Allen's career in critical perspective. The book also offers insights into Woody's working methods as a writer and the growth of his skill as a director, as well as his own assessment of his work as an actor and his surprising views of his long life in the public eye."--Jacket.
