This page is essentially a duplicate of Woody Allen, except for the connections list. I'd like to just merge these together -- do we feel like making a big connections list on Allen's page with all of the people from Allen movies? Or is that kind of crazy, considering how many movies he's made? -- Danny (talk) 07:27, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
- It's not crazy to me (I'd have a grand time with such a list; Purple Rose of Cairo has Jenny aka Juliana Donald, for one)! And it's something we've done with authors, or in cases like Alfred Hitchcock. It works since Allen (like Hitchcock) is an auteur, and there've been multiple references to multiple movies, as well as the man himself. I meant to go to bed, but this will be fun, so give me a few minutes (plus Allen has a direct connection I've meant to add forever)! -- Andrew Leal (talk) 07:40, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
- Whew. Well, connections list started and info merged (and I added the fact that Woody Allen was on Our Place; haven't found footage but as host, Rowlf introduced each guest and always interacted at least briefly at the end, sometimes more depending, so that qualifies Woody as a full celebrity). I didn't feel like trying to note every Mia Farrow role (not tonight anyway) but basically this page can be redirected (especially since the calendar image was a dual film reference anyway), and Nate can have fun with the folks I left out. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 08:24, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
- Because we'll most likely have Allen in the celebrity category before long, can we leave the Annie Hall page seperate? If not I understand, and I will make it a catagorized redirect, but with so much on the Allen page now (which is great, I love Andrew's connections), might be nice to have the actual movie seperate. -- Nate (talk) 15:59, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
- Allen is in the celebrity category now, yes, but one reference to Annie Hall also references Interiors and Alvy Mellish too is a dual reference, so Danny's right. It's just repetition, and as noted, it's the policy we use on authors, Hitchcock, etc. The Annie Hall parody image is the first one on the Allen page (since we won't have any relevant image of the man himself unless/until any Our Place footage shows up; I found an archive that has the audio portions only), so really, looking at the two, the Annie Hall connection is still prominent. All that's being lost is the film summary, which isn't that vital in this instance anyway (the info on awards and such that pertain directly to Allen can be added to the lead-in). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 20:10, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
