Woody Allen: A Documentary NOV 21 2011
American Masters is airing a two-part documentary on Woody Allen this week on PBS.
Beginning with Allen's childhood and his first professional gigs as a teen -- furnishing jokes for comics and publicists -- American Masters -- Woody Allen: A Documentary chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen's career: from his work in the 1950s-60s as a TV scribe for Sid Caesar, standup comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years.
The first part aired last night (it's rerunning throughout the week so check listings, etc.) and the second part is tonight.
