Introduced by Doug Hart
Dir. Woody Allen. 1983, 79 mins. 35mm. With Woody Allen, Mia Farrow, Patrick Horgan. Woody Allen’s pseudo-documentary seamlessly blends actual 1920-30s newsreel footage with new photography to produce an astonishing technical achievement that earned Willis his first Oscar nomination. Allen stars as “human chameleon” Leonard Zelig with an uncanny ability to imitate anyone he meets. Look out for Saul Bellow and Susan Sontag in offbeat cameos. Doug Hart was Willis’s assistant cameraman on Broadway Danny Rose, Stardust Memories, and Zelig.
