“One of the funniest and most touching characters Mr. Allen has yet created…As for Miss Farrow, her comic talents here are a revelation.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Broadway Danny Rose, like all of Allen’s best movies, is a New York movie…accomplished with wonderfully off-the-wall characterizations…It all works.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“A delectable diversion which allows Woody Allen to present a reasonably humane and amusing gentle character study.” —Variety
Broadway Danny Rose (1984), starring, written, and directed by Woody Allen, gives us a variation on his patented schlub character: this time, the eponymous good-hearted talent agent who represents not just the worst but the most pathetic acts in show business. Among these is Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte), a corny lounge singer saddled with a drinking problem and a temperamental mistress, Tina Vitale (Mia Farrow, in a terrific comic performance). When Lou asks Danny to be his beard with Tina, the wimpy agent suddenly finds himself dealing with the Mob—and with the feisty Tina, herself. Beautifully rendered in black-and-white by cinematographer Gordon Willis.
