Format: DVD
Most of Woody Allen's great early films are here (the only exception being 'Take the Money and Run', his very first, which is absent for some reason). This is a wonderful 'starter' set for anyone curious about Allen, and a must have for any fan who doesn't already have all the titles seperately.

My brief comments on the films (on a 4 star scale)

Bananas (1971)***1/2 Incredibly funny, broad, slapstick, surreal political satire as Woody takes over a Latin American country to impress a girl. A few bits feel dated, and it didn't make me laugh quite as much as 'Take the Money and Run' when I recently re-watched Allen's 'early funny films', but it still has more than it's share of great comic moments. The whole trial sequence is genius worthy of the very best of the Marx Brothers. (Or, in a more modern context Monty Python) Personally I don't love the score -- it tends to underline jokes that don't need the help. It was after this that Allen went away from having music written for his films, using existing pieces instead, which became a huge part of his filmmaking style.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (1972) *** While all the early Woody Allen films are funny and worthwhile, this is probably the most uneven to my taste. Allen took the famous, serious non-fiction book about sex, and turned it into a series of short comedy pieces. A couple segments are pure genius (inside the male body during sex, Gene Wilder falling in love with a sheep), a couple are pretty good (Woody as a medieval court jester trying to have an affair with the queen, who is locked into a chastity belt, a mad scientist creates a giant milk squirting breast that goes on a rampage) and a few are real duds.

If you're buying this then surely you already know that you like these old Woody Allen movies so there's no need for me to attempt to review the films themselves. I found the box set is well presented with each disc in a very slim case with the usual picture cover and short spiel and technical info on the back. More importantly the transfers to DVD have been done well. Plenty of movies from the pre-digital era have suffered from shoddy transfer to DVD with cropped pictures, poor sound, and video quality resembling VHS. Fortunately the movies in this set have not suffered any of those problems. You can immerse yourself in watching them without risking being distracted or disappointed by anything except the casting, acting, sets, wardrobe, or dialogue.

A simply sublime collection of six of Woody Allen's early films with Annie Hall clearly the one to savour. Am slightly puzzled that this does not include his first film as director -"Take the Money and Run", which is a side-splitting gem. For this omission I would have deducted half a star - but I can't so 5 stars it has to be and deservedly so ! At the price, it is stunning value for money . Go get it!!

Woody Allen is one of those directors who is forgotten when you mention the greastest directors of the 70's (i.e. Scorsese, De Palma, Lucus. this collection brings together his films from that generation (excluding one or two). The two best films in this collection, and the two bet known for being his best films are Manhatten and Annie hall. Both of these films tred the line between romantic films and comedies. Others to be included are Sleeper, Love and Death, Bananas and Everything you wanted to know about sex.
My one problem with this collection are that all disks are bare-bone. A few extras would have come a treat but apparently Woody doesn't DO extra features!
Overall, this collection is a must have and any fan of comedy!
