Happy Birthday, Woody Allen!

“As an artist, you are always striving toward an ultimate achievement but never seem to reach it.”

Before the day is out, I have to take a moment to acknowledge Woody Allen on his birthday. He’s one of my favorites screenwriters and a quintessential New Yorker.  He debuted as a screenwriter in 1965 and has written at least one screenplay a year since then.  He’s won four Academy Awards, three for screenplays, and was nominated twenty-four times.

“That’s one of the nice things about writing, or any art; if the thing’s real, it just lives.”

My favorite Woody Allen movie?  Well, it does change from time-to-time. Tonight?  Midnight in Paris.  And Owen Wilson was so good at playing it Woodyesque.
