Bananas

    Just saw Woody Allen's flick "Bananas" on TCM. Haven't giggled like that in a while. It's silly and funny, a pre-Airplane Airplane of sorts. Made in 1971, foul year of the lord, according to HST, and a young Sylvester Stallone is in it for a brief role. Howard Cosell bookends the movie.

    Right now they're going to show Allen on the old Dick Cavett Show. They showed it earlier tonight. It's not so bad. I've never seen this side of Woody. I'd encourage a viewing to see the guy during his early years. There's a really foreboding line late in the show that's funny, sort of, when he talks about junior high girls.

    Anyway, Bananas is pretty funny. Anyone else seen it?

    I thought this thread would be about that Gwen Stefani song.

    'Bananas' is a classic.
    Check out 'Take the Money and Run,' which I enjoy even more.
    Of course, I'm a big Allen fan.
    That doesn't mean I approve of his personal life. I just like his work.

    I loved Bananas when I saw it. I think. It was at least 15 years ago. My dad has all the oldies, I'll give it a look.

    Isn't that the one where he pulls the pin on the grenade and throws the pin?

    See, THAT was the kind of thing that made me laugh the last time I saw it. Which, come to think of it, is exactly what makes me laugh now.

    do they show movies based on time zones? or are all movies played at the same time nationally. because here they're showing woody allen on the dick cavett show.

    I'm in the office right now waiting for copy from a baseball game, football game, boxing match and a volleyball match.
    No Allen tonight for me, but thanks for the headsup.

    Well, Buck, if TCM time zones its lineup, the show is on at 11 p.m.

    No replay of Bananas following the Dick Cavett show. Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex at 12:15 EST with Annie Hall after that.
