TV Pilot by Woody Allen
11 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a film print of this at Illinois State University in 1986. Haven't been able to find it since. Stars Alan Alda and Louise Lasser as a TV writer and his wife. Full of Woody-esquire one-liners. Shot in black & white. I remember it (vaguely at this point) as being somewhat amusing. It's very interesting to watch if your a Woody Allen fan and are curious about his early work and beginnings. At the screening that I saw it was publicized as an unaired or perhaps just un-picked TV pilot. I also remember being amused at seeing young Alan Alda and Louise Lasser and hearing Woody's early lines. If I remember right, some of them were later recycled into some stories or films but its been 20 years so my memory is vague.
