Alternate Versions

The original airing featured an animated title sequence depicting Allen with his head in a guillotine, as an astronaut, and as his character from Take the Money and Run. Subsequent versions delete this sequence. Credits are shown over a freeze frame of Allen coming out on stage and show the title as "The Woody Allen Show". See more »

It reminded me of Springtime in Vienna...
1 April 2001 | by llewodcmnebSee all my reviews

The TV Special on Woody Allen reminded me of my holiday in Vienna.

It was springtime and love was in the air. It smelled of dainty roses and Fairy dust. However, like the four seasons, the splendid TV special ended. And i was left in the cold watching Old Man Summer tanning my skin.
