Sept. 20, 1969, Woody Allen

Woody Allen got a rave review in The Times for his upcoming CBS special.

Can you think of anything as weird or complex or interesting as the thought of Allen sitting in a chair next to evangelist Billy Graham, discussing moral and ethical issues?

"Mr. Graham, introduced rather irreverently but honestly by Allen, returns the fire with good humor and even agrees to see one of Allen's pictures if Allen will come to one of his revival meetings [to which Allen agrees]," wrote Don Page in The Times.

It is fascinating television and made me think twice about the predictable plots I've been wasting my time watching. Here's a glimpse.
