Deconstructing Harry (1997) Poster

Trivia

Albert Brooks was the last actor to be offered the role of Harry. In an interview with Playboy magazine, he stated that he received a nice letter from Woody Allen offering him the role. Brooks responded, "It was insane that [Allen] didn't do it himself." Apparently, Woody took his advice.
Woody Allen based Harry's trip on Ingmar Bergman's Wild Strawberries (1957) (also known as "Wild Strawberries"). Bergman is said to be Allen's favorite director.
