Manhattan is a 1979 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Woody Allen. This is the ninth film Allen is credited as both writer (Marshall Brickman shares writing credit) and director. Allen described the film as a combination of his previous two films, Annie Hall and Interiors. According to Allen, the idea for Manhattan originated from his love of George Gershwin’s music. He was listening to one of the composer’s album of overtures and thought, “this would be a beautiful thing to make … a movie in black and white … a romantic movie.”
The film was met with widespread critical acclaim and was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actress for Hemingway and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen for Allen and Brickman. Its North American box office receipts of $39.9 million made it Allen’s second biggest box office hit (after adjusting for inflation). Often considered Allen’s best film, it ranks 46th on AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Laughs list and number 63 on Bravo’s “100 Funniest Movies.” In 2001, the US Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally significant” and selected it for preseration in the National Film Registry.
