On the box
Bananas
Quiero la noche, quiero...


The only one of these three I’ve seen before. 34 years on a lot of the jokes still work.

Can you name the uncredited actor who later became famous?

Did anybody else notice that the church used in the ‘New Testament’ cigarette ad is what looks like a latinized (no icon screen in front of the altar) Byzantine Catholic church? The parody of Communion doesn’t look like real Communion in any rite.

And after that:

The Purple Rose of Cairo
Charming, period-authentic but a little surreal as well. Woody Allen’s favourite of his own films?

And then:

Another Woman
One of his dramas. The only one of this star-packed cast whom I’ve seen live on stage is Philip Bosco, breaking down in the dock as Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial. Wonderful actor.
