Hollywood legend Woody Allen (Sleeper, Bananas, Love and Death) made his brilliant debut as writer, star and director in this delightful satire full of hilarious gags. Virgil Starkwell (Allen), a struggling musician, turns to larceny as a career. Unfailingly optimistic, he is nevertheless a complete criminal failure - although his prison breakouts are often successful. And with the support of his loving wife Louise (Janet Margolin, Last Embrace), he may yet pull off a successful bank heist... if he can just manage to write out a legible stickup note. Allen at his hilarious best never fails to steal the audience's heart in this inspired comedy that's nothing less than triumphant nuttiness. The wonderful supporting cast features Lonny Chapman (I Walk the Line) and Louise Lasser (Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, But Were Afraid to Ask).

Further, ABC VIDEO is not affiliated with PARAMOUNT.
The tape tracks well and has good HiFi audio, but it's all downhill from there. Recorded at the slowest speed, it's got a blurry picture that over-saturates with color. Had I known ABC VIDEO meant: crapola, I wouldn't have bought this doorstop, and humbly suggest that you don't either. Go with the 1992 FOX HOME ENTERTAINMENT version instead.
If you liked Sleeper and Love and Death, Allen's best early comedies, you will like this one.
