Annie Hall

Love is too weak a word.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
What’s there to say about Annie Hall? It’s an American classic, arguably Woody Allen’s finest film and perhaps one of the best romantic comedies of all time.

Remembering Anthony Shadid


Commentary

Phil Bacharach
What I remember most about Anthony Shadid from high school was his laugh. It was disarmingly infectious. His eyes would crinkle and his head would tilt back, and he reminded me of a young Ringo Starr, all smiles and shy charm.
