"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

He adored New York City. He idolised it all out of proportion.

Great shot of Yankee Stadium in this sequence.

I watched this a couple of weeks ago after not seeing it for years. I think Annie Hall is up next for me. Are you watching the 3 1/2 hour thing on PBS about Allen? In my part of the world part one aired last night and part two airs tonight.

1) Yes, I saw it. I prefer Annie Hall. Manhattan is beautiful and it is romantic and has a sweetness at the end but I don't like the characters as much as I like in Annie Hall. Other Tracy, I just don't find the people in Manhattan likable, they are shrill, at least not so that I find I can rewatch the movie often. That said, it has some great stuff in it and some hilarious lines.

I think MANHATTAN might be the greatest movie opening of all time. It's a bold statement... But I can't think of anything else that packs the same punch for me.
