Woody Allen in 2006

Woody Allen is an award-winning American film director, screenwriter, actor, author, jazz musician, comedian and playwright. He has contributed to many projects as either writer, director, actor, or a combination of the three. Allen has also written four plays for the stage, and written sketches for the Broadway revue From A to Z, and the Broadway productions Don't Drink the Water (1966) and Play It Again, Sam (1969).[1] His first film was the 1965 comedy What's New Pussycat?, which featured him as both writer and performer. His directorial debut was the 1966 film What's Up, Tiger Lily?, in which a dramatic Japanese spy movie was re-dubbed in English with completely new, comic dialog. According to Box Office Mojo, Allen's films have grossed a total of more than $575 million, with an average of $14 million per film (domestic gross figures as a director.)

In addition to works of fiction, Allen has appeared as himself in many documentaries and other works of non-fiction, including Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures, Wild Man Blues, and The Concert for New York City. He has also been the subject of and appeared in three documentaries about himself, To Woody Allen, From Europe with Love in 1980, Woody Allen: A Life in Film in 2001, and a 2011 PBS American Masters documentary, Woody Allen: a Documentary (directed by Robert B. Weide). He also wrote for and contributed to a number of television series early in his career, including The Tonight Show as guest host.

Currently, all of the films he directed for American International Pictures, Cinerama Releasing Corporation, United Artists and Orion Pictures between 1965 and 1992 are owned by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which acquired all the studios in separate transactions.
