‘Annie Hall’ (1977)

“We took a tour of the Acropolis late in the morning, and I looked down upon the theater and felt a connection. I mean, this is where Oedipus debuted. It’s amazing for someone who’s spent his life in show business or worked in dramatic art to look down at the theater where, thousands of years ago, guys like Mike Nichols and Stephen Sondheim and David Mamet were in togas, thinking, “Gee, I can’t get this line to work.” You know, “I’ve been working on it all night. And that actor, he doesn’t know how to deliver it.” Sophocles and Euripides and Aristophanes. “The costumes are late, and we gotta go on!” –Woody Allen
