Broadway Danny Rose movie scene

Woody Allen makes the call in Broadway Danny Rose.

Woody Allen’s (Crimes and Misdemeanors) 1984 comedy Broadway Danny Rose makes its Blu-ray debut in April courtesy of Twilight Time.

Starring, written, and directed by Woody, Broadway Danny Rose offers a variation on the filmmaker’s patented schlub character: this time, he’s the eponymous good-hearted talent agent who represents not just the worst, but the most pathetic acts in show business. Among these is Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte), a corny lounge singer saddled with a drinking problem and a temperamental mistress, Tina Vitale (Mia Farrow, Rosemary’s Baby). When Lou asks Danny to be his beard with Tina, the wimpy agent suddenly finds himself dealing with the Mob—and with the feisty Tina, herself.

The film is beautifully rendered in black-and-white by cinematographer Gordon Willis—and it’s sure to look gorgeous in its Blu-ray incarnation.

Special features include an isolated music and effects audio track and the film’s original theatrical trailer.

Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, the time to pre-order your Blu-ray discs directly from distributor Screen Archives is NOW!
