Tonight, PBS will be showing part 1 of their 2 part, three and a half hour documentary on one of my favorite all time directors, Woody Allen.  As part of their “American Masters” series this film promises to cover all aspects of the master writer, director and actor that is Woody.

From the PBS site: “This is the Woody doc everybody has been waiting for, and I am delighted that this creative giant is finally assuming his rightful place in the American Masters library,” says Susan Lacy, series creator and executive producer of American Masters.

American Masters – Woody Allen: A Documentary chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen’s career: from his work in the 1950s-60s as a TV scribe for Sid Caesar, standup comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years.
