This 1971 comedy is truly vintage Woody Allen. How he manages to squeeze his neurotic Jewish mensch character, a South American assassination and coup, tons of physical comedy, hilarious slams at organized religion and idolatry AND The Wide World of Sports & Howard Cosell into 88 minutes is a lot of fun to watch. Listen for a Marvin Hamlisch score written two years before he broke out with "The Sting". This one is B for Bananas!
