A masterpiece. Firstly, any film with Irving Howe, Saul Bellow, Susan Sontag and the voice of Betty Boop is going to earn high marks. It’s one of Woody’s most original concepts, but very heartfelt. Mia Farrow is terrific here — and what’s amazing is that you mostly see her in old photographs. I’d forgotten just how funny this picture was. A lot of classic Woody zingers actually derive from this, one of his more “serious” films.
