Play It Again, Sam

Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1972. Collection of 18 vintage studio still photographs from the 1972 film.

Based on Woody Allen's 1969 play.

A comedy that is pretty difficult to overestimate. Even though it was not directed by Woody Allen, it was the template for the many great films he would subsequently write and direct in the 1970s, in terms of shooting style, timing, romantic themes, and the actors involved (the irrepressible trio of Allen, Keaton, and Roberts). Allen had already directed two films at this point ("Take the Money and Run" and "Bananas"), but this film is significant in that it predicted the more substantive romantic comedies that would later place him among the most important filmmakers of his era, notably "Annie Hall" (1977) and "Manhattan" (1979).

Shot on location in California.
