Take The Money And Run

A fake documentary about Woody Allen's life as a bankrobber. Written and directed by Woody Allen.

This is the first Woody Allen film I ever saw. It was shown on Norwegian tv in the 70s. I had no idea who Woody Allen was at the time. I remember it to be quite funny. The gun of soap bit stuck in my head. Rewatching it now, it's an uneven film. The first half is funny, the second half, after the prison escape, drags a bit. The parents wearing masks gag gets old. But being a "mockumentary" (the first?) gives the film actually a certain freshness.
