Movies, Investments, Endorsements & Book Publications

Movies

Woody Allen, who is a world-famous director, has not just directed but has also written and acted in several movies.

What’s New Pussycat? a comedy released in 1965 was his first film, which featured him as both writer and performer.

In this role, Allen felt that his New Yorker humor was mismatched with the director’s British sensibility and decided to direct all future films from his material.

In addition to fiction-based work, Allen also appeared in many documentaries and other works of non-fiction as himself, including Stanley Kubrick: A Life in PicturesWild Man Blues, and The Concert for New York City.

He has also made an appearances in documentaries such as To Woody Allen, From Europe with Love in 1980, Woody Allen: A Life in Film, and  PBS American Masters documentary, Woody Allen: a Documentary.

Allen’s films are said to have grossed a total of more than $575 million, with an average of $14 million per film.

Currently, all of the films directed by him are the property of  Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as well as the American Broadcasting Company.

Similarly, Allen’s work has also been influenced by European art cinema, which can be observed in the movies Interiors and Another Woman.

His recent movies include A Rainy Day in New York and Refkin’s Festival, released in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Investments

The Cafe Society director is reported to have said the following statement, which is often taken as a reference in the field of investing-

“80 percent of success is showing up.”

As it is believed, “showing up” is among one of the most successful investment experiences, which help to understand the timing of the ebbs and flows of the market.

Much of the investments that Allen himself has made is, however, unknown.

Endorsements

Allen is not known to endorse products in the United States.

Furthermore, in the year 2009, Allen started the fight against American Apparel Inc., where he sued the company fighting a $10 million lawsuit.

This issue surfaced consequently after the company used the picture of him from the movie Annie Hall from a scene where he was dressed as a Hasidic Jew.

The image was used on the company’s billboards in Hollywood and New York and their Web site without his prior permission.

However, the company had argued that it couldn’t have damaged his reputation by using his image because the film director has already ruined it himself.

Book Publications

Apropos of Nothing is an autobiography Woody Allen published last year.

The book which was was originally supposed to be published by Grand Central Publishing in April, but one month ahead, Hachette said they would no longer publish it.

This was due to the sexual allegation cases against the filmmaker.

In the end, the memoir was later published by Arcade Publishing in English and, in Italian, it was published by La nave di Teseo on March 23, 2020.

Consequently, other books authored by Allen include Without Feathers, Side Effects, Getting Even, Mere Anarchy, The Complete Prose of Woody Allen, among others.

Career

Allen broke into show business at a ripe age of 15 years when he started writing jokes for a local paper, earning $200 a week.

Later, he also moved on to write jokes for talk shows. However, he had a disappointing feeling where he felt that his jokes were not being properly used.

Due to this, he received encouragement from his agents to get into stand-up and to tell his own jokes.

Although he agreed reluctantly, he eventually became very successful at stand-up.
