Listen to Woody Allen Talk About Midnight in Paris in the 1960s


So it turns out Woody Allen basically figured out the plot of Midnight in Paris in the late 1960s. That’s how it seems when you listen to this footage of him doing standup from back in the day, anyhow. It’s kind of amazing that a concept like this can stay in the back of someone’s mind for 50 years before it becomes a movie. It’s a good thing he never actually got punched by Ernest Hemingway, because the ensuing brain damage would surely render that impossible.
