Take the Money and Run (18-Aug-1969)

Director: Woody Allen

Writers: Woody Allen; Mickey Rose

Keywords: Crime/Comedy, Mockumentary, Bank Robbery

The life of Virgil Starkwell, failed cellist and perpetually inept criminal, told in documentary style. Heists end in disaster. He plans robberies within earshot of policemen. Bank tellers cannot read his writing. An attempt at purse snatching ends with him falling in love with the victim. Fast-paced, genuinely funny Woody Allen in his zany slapstick phase.
