Woody Allen hates personal publicity. He doesn’t appear on talk shows or attend the Oscars. He rarely gives interviews, even when he has a new film to promote. But a few years back Allen opened up to filmmaker Robert B. Weide for the making of Woody Allen: A Documentary, which aired last year in the American Masters series on PBS. “He never refused a request,” Weide told PBS, “and he never declined to answer a question.” At one point Weide asked Allen a series of twelve questions that he was reasonably sure Allen had never been asked before. The resulting interview, shown above, is included as an extra in the DVD version of the film and offers a fascinating little portal into the reclusive filmmaker’s personality.
