Alice was Woody Allen’s 19th film, and a big showcase for Mia Farrow. It is a feel good film with some great cinema magic, yet remains one of Allen’s most obscure. Our latest video essay looks at this quietly lovely film.
We dig into:
1. The song that taps into the Chinatown vibe
2. The film’s original title
3. Keye Luke’s last role
4. Joe Mantegna’s filming two roles at the same time
5. That fab apartment
6. Central Park Zoo
7. New York’s Chinatown
8. The oldest Italian restaurant in New York
9. The documentary shown in the film
10. The man behind that awesome red outfit

We really like making these videos. With 19, we edging towards halfway! Although Wonder Wheel will likely be out before we finish. We’d love to know what you think of the videos, and if you like them, make sure you give them that old thumbs up on the video. It really helps us.
