Overview

Herbert Ross' wonderful adaptation of Woody Allen's stage play Play It Again, Sam comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials on this release. The list price is a tad high for a film lacking any extras, but the film looks and sounds as good as it ever has on home video. Allen fans certainly will not be disappointed with this DVD.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Adapted from his own stage play, Play It Again, Sam is arguably Woody Allen's most consistently funny early film, even as it blended his broader comedy with more serious relationship insecurities, precluding his greatest triumph, 1977's Annie Hall. Before Play It Again, Allen's films had been praised for their laughs and their nonconformist styles: the faux-documentary of Take the Money and Run (1969), the schizophrenic political satire of Bananas (1971), and the skit-comedy of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex (1972). Director Herbert Ross was criticized by some viewers for turning Allen's material into more conventional romantic comedy. Play It Again, Sam was also Allen's first film with frequent future collaborators Diane Keaton and Tony Roberts.
