Play It Again, Sam

Play It Again SamRelease Date: 4th May 1972

Play It Again, Sam is the most Woody Allen film that he did not direct. It is perhaps the only must-watch of what we call Allen’s ‘other films’, as he is the star and he wrote both the film (and the stage play before it). A tender story of (then) modern love, it was Allen’s first onscreen appearance that was not slapstick, and an important part of his story.

Allen plays Allan Felix, a recently divorced film critic who is re-entering the dating circuit. On his side are his friend Dick (Tony Roberts) and his wife Linda (Diane Keaton), but while they look at other women, Allan and Linda find that they might have more going in between them.
