Personal Quote:

[re Take the Money and Run (1969)] I had never seen comedy like that. It was subversive and smart, and yet so silly at the same time. I wanted to be an actor at that point in my life [9 years old] and when I realized that [Woody] Allen wrote and directed and starred in this film, that really kind of set the course for what I thought my life was going to be.
