Woody Allen’s Producer Jack Rollins Dies at 100

18 June 2015 5:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime comedy producer-manager Jack Rollins, who handled Woody Allen, David Letterman, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and Lenny Bruce, died Thursday at his home in Manhattan. He was 100.

Rollins, a native of Brooklyn, was a co-producer with the late Charles H. Joffe on many of Allen’s films. The duo managed many of the industry’s top comedy acts starting in the 1960s.

Rollins appeared briefly in Allen’s 1984 film, “Broadway Danny Rose,” in which Allen played a manager of a variety of strange acts — a character he loosely modeled on Rollins.

Rollins and Joffe had producing credits on all of Allen’s films between 1969 and 1993, including “Take the Money and Run,” “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Bananas,” Sleeper,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Zelig,” “Radio Days” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Born as Jacob Rabinowitz in Brooklyn, he broke into the business after World War II as a Broadway producer, then founded a talent »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »
