Broadway Danny Rose

One of Woody Allen's funniest modern films, BROADWAY DANNY ROSE takes a look at one of the last of the great New York talent agents.

Allen stars as the title character, a dedicated agent with a decidedly second (and third) rate stable of talent.

When his lounge singer Lou Canova starts to regain stardom in a wave of nostalgia, Danny must reunite the nervous singer with his girlfriend Tina Vitale (Mia Farrow).

Tina is also dating a mobster with a lot of angry brothers who are soon chasing Danny when he is mistaken for Tina's other boyfriend.

It all culminates as Danny tries to get Tina together with Lou before his big TV shot with Milton Berle, with mobsters in pursuit and a lot of great one liners along the way. Some faves:

"It's very important to be guilty. I'm guilty all the time and I never did anything."

"Take my Aunt Rose. Not a beautiful woman at all. She looks like something from a live bait store."

"I dont want to badmouth the kid, but he's a horrible, dishonest, immoral louse. And I say that with all due respect."

Great stuff. Nick Apollo Forte is very good as Lou and the entire cast of Danny's acts are hilarious.

Made in 1984, it's Woody at his lighthearted, quick witted, black & white best. Broadway Danny gets a B.
