Lena Dunham: The podcast that she is "decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen's behavior," though she also didn't want to judge his films based on her opinion of him ("I'm not going to indict the work").

"But for me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that's not the f—ing point." Sarah Silverman: The actress-comedian tweeted out a link to Ronan Farrow's piece on Wednesday, commenting that she believed Dylan and Ronan's account: "My comedy hero Woody Allen, and his untouchable PR machine and our not wanting it to be true.

Roosevelt or Doris Lessing had sexually abused a child." He concluded: "Obviously if he did not in fact commit the crime, this is an appalling situation." Scarlett Johansson: The in March 2014 that "It's not like this is somebody that's been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, ' I don't support this lifestyle or whatever.' I mean, it's all guesswork." She added, "It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other." Cate Blanchett: Promoting at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in 2014, Blanchett didn't want to address the accusations against Allen, saying that it's a family ordeal.

The instrument in the Music Room under which the Tarot cards are hidden is constantly referred to as a "French horn" when in fact it is actually a Conn 16E Mellophonium. This time Woody leaves behind the arriviste murder mystery genre and returns to comedy, and is himself back on the screen as an amiable vaudevillian, a magician called Sid Waterman, stage moniker The Great Splendini, who counters some snobs' probing with, "I used to be of the Hebrew persuasion, but as I got older, I converted to narcissism." Following a revelation in the midst of Splendini's standard dematerializing act, with Scarlett Johansson (as Sondra Pransky) the audience volunteer, the mismatched pair get drawn into a dead ace English journalist's post-mortem attempt to score one last top news story.

Allen seems to stick to persons he has known for ages (I assume he is basically loyal and expects loyalty in turn).

Early in his career he teamed up with people who created Woody Allen as a product.
