Three parts of a rough cut of a seemingly pissed Woody Allen being anti-interviewed by Michael Parkinson in 1971 at the time of Bananas. Woody, apparently annoyed that United Artists forced him to do press, decided to screw around, so his questioner had no choice but to go with the moment. There comic is sincere when he says that he didn’t care for Laurel & Hardy’s comedy. And the line about A Streetcar Named Desire having a chase scene is funny even though the guest wanted to amuse no one. It’s just a train wreck.
