I hadn’t seen Take the Money and Run in many years. Likely 20. It was a lot of fun revisiting it after such a long time.
Not surprisingly, it’s still funny stuff.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Allen’s early “funny” period. I’m a fan of most of his films up to and including 1989’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, but I have a real soft spot for his early work. Allen going all-in on gags and jokes is a real joy to watch.
Actually, as an aside, if you’ve never read any of his prose, I can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s brilliantly funny stuff.
Hrm… This is making me want to revisit all those early films. That’d be a fun week.
