Play It Again, Sam (4-May-1972)

Director: Herbert Ross

Writer: Woody Allen

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, San Francisco

A divorced film critic Allan Felix, inept and brimming with neuroses, reluctantly re-enters the dating world with dubious help from dead mentor Humphrey Bogart, as well as his oblivious best friend and his wife, Dick and Linda. Pure slapstick, it is one of Allen's best romantic comedies, and also one of his best neurotic character pieces; an homage to Casablanca (1942).
