In an interview with 'Cinema' magazine in March 1972, Woody Allen
said: "I would never want to direct a play into a movie. I would only be interested in working on original projects for the screen. I was already at work on [Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask
(1972)], and I didn't want to spend a year doing a project that I had done on Broadway". Woody Allen
hoped that the film, directed by director Herbert Ross
, would garner "a nice, solid, funny commercial picture, and hopefully entice a broader audience for me than I get with my own films". See more
