This Sunday, PBS will premiere a new “American Masters” documentary about Woody Allen’s life and work. In the next episode of Vox Tablet, host Sara Ivry speaks with the maker of that documentary, Robert Weide. Best known as an executive producer and the principal director of Curb Your Enthusiasm, for which he’s received many Emmy nominations (in 2003 he won for his direction in the episode “Krazee-Eyez Killa”), Weide relates how he watched countless hours of stand-up Woody and talk-show-guest Woody as well as, of course, all 45 or so of Woody’s films. Of those, he notes that one now strikes him as far more impressive then he remembered it to have been. Any guesses?

Here’s a hint:

You can find out more about Weide and about Woody Allen on tomorrow’s podcast, so stay tuned. Oh, and answer after the jump.

That’s John Cusack and Dianne Wiest in 1994’s Bullets Over Broadway.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
