Synopsis: A testament to love in the 70's . A neurotic comedian, Alvy Singer, traces his relationship with a very ditsy Annie Hall.

Fact: Sigourney Weaver's screen debut as Alvy's date at the end of the film. The part is non-speaking.

Trivia: Alvy sneezing into the cocaine was an accident. The scene was left in after it was considered one of the funniest bits in the movie.

Movie Mistake: Christopher Walken's name is misspelled in the final credits. He's listed as Christopher Wlaken.

My Take: Annie Hall is the film where Woody Allen was hitting his stride as being a real original and funny filmmaker, which was rewarded with an Academy Award for best picture. I miss the old Woody Allen, his new stuff is really just a mere shadow of his former work.
