Broadway Danny Rose - 1984

Genre: Comedy
Run Time: 84 minutes

Film Synopsis

Danny Rose (Woody Allen), is a two-bit theatrical agent in Manhattan, who represents extremely minor and questionnable acts -- including a one-armed juggler, blind xylophone players, and the '50s-style crooner Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte). The talented Canova becomes Rose's only hope for success.

Movie Remarks

Often overlooked, Broadway Danny Rose has developed a cult following among select Woody Allen fans; Chris Rock, of all people, says it's one of his favorite films.

Allen plays a devoted talent agent for acts whose talent is, shall we say, marginal.

But one of his clients, a faded singer named Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte), suddenly has a chance to perform for a record executive. Nervous, Canova insists that Rose bring his girlfriend to the show--unfortunately, his girlfriend is Tina Vitale (Mia Farrow), the wife of a big-time mobster. (Farrow's performance is superb and unlike anything else in her career: loud, brassy, and comically obnoxious.) Part caper, part-show biz satire, Broadway Danny Rose would make an excellent companion to Paper Moon; both are a delightful combination of nostalgia and cutting observations about human nature.
