For an entire generation, "Annie Hall "embodied the notion of a New York peopled by sophisticated intellectuals--all sent up by the deadpan comedy of Woody Allen, writer, director, and of course star. It also confirmed the sparkling acting talent of Diane Keaton as a partner for Woody on screen. The film has survived as a popular comedy, however, by virtue of Allen's inventiveness as a director and the timelessness of his satire. Peter Cowie's study of "Annie Hall" recaptures the mood of the 70s, and examines the myriad imaginative touches that distinguish this film from other American productions of the period. The book also includes a glossary of the many cultural references which give the film its distinctively "intellectual" tone.
