Fun with Woody: The Complete Woody Allen Quiz Book

Graham Flashner, Author Henry Holt & Company $0 (239p) ISBN 978-0-8050-0519-6
Screenwriter Flashner uses a Q & A format to test readers' knowledge of the ""funniest lines and scenes from Woody's films, plays, books and nightclub routines, as well as behind-the-scenes production notes.'' The more than 500 questions are difficult and include, for example, ``For all of Woody's New York filming, he only rides the subway once . . . and is terrorized. In which movie does he ride?'' Curiously absent from this encyclopedic compilation is a trivia often debated by Allen's fans: ``Is the title of What's Up Tiger Lily? written with or without a comma?'' Another unfortunate note: Flashner sometimes uses the incorrect multiple-choice answers to create his own versions of Allen gags, something that Allen admirers may resent. An appendix lists Allen's films, books, records and plays; 61 black-and-white photographs not seen by PW. (November)
