Love & Death
Grab a seat early for the Brooks Memorial Library Allan Stewart Konigsberg's (Woody Allen) Film Festival.
Brooklyn born Konigsberg (Allen) is a film director, actor, comedian, playright, and a jazz clarinetist who plays at small venues all around Manhattan.
Allen is prolific. He has either acted, written, or directed a film in every year since 1965, for a total of 46 films. He has won three Academy Awards and has been nominated 21 times. The film Annie Hall garnered 4 Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Actress).

The film tonight is LOVE AND DEATH , starring Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Feodor Atkine MGM/UA; Directed by Woody Allen Rated PG; 85 minutes; 1975.
If a comedy based on the great Russian novels doesn't sound funny to you, then you don't know Woody Allen. Try to imagine Boris Grushenko (Woody Allen), a small skinny coward in the Russian army during the Napoleonic Wars. Like any good Russian of the time, Boris talks and thinks expansively on all the great issues of life, love, and death. The plot leads us to everything in the era worth lampooning.
