Woody Allen directed _A Midsummer Sex Comedy_, a spin off of AMND (no
Shakespeare in it, but Mendelssohn is on the soundtrack) and Allen's
character in _Annie Hall_ mentions Shakespeare in the Park.  Could we
have the full bibliographical reference to the _I Love Lucy_ episode
with Welles (both the book and the episode itself)?

I'm sure many will respond to Marion Morford's question about Woody
Allen and Shakespeare with his appearance as the Fool in Jean-Luc
Godard's 1987 modern interpretation of King Lear.

Marion K Morford asks

>Has Woody Allen done any Shakespeare?

Not directly, although some list his Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy as
spinoff (it's really more a spinoff of Bergman), and he does appear in
Godard's Lear.

>Does anyone know of reviews of "Chimes at midnight" - Welles' narrative
>f the life and adventures of Falstaff as compiled from several plays.

Many exist.  A recent volume of Post Script provided an excellent
bibliography of Shakespearean film, with Chimes at Midnight included.

Marion asks: "Has Woody Allen done any Shakespeare?"  Well, I remember
the quite delightful "A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy" from about ten or
twelve years ago.  Are there any others?

I don't know if Woody Allen has produced a Shakespeare play, but check
out _A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy_, which pays a debt to _MND_.
