Woody Allen was born on December 1, 1935, as Allen Konigsberg, in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 15, he started selling one-liners to gossip columns. After working a while as a stand up comedian, he was hired to write What's New Pussycat (1965) in 1965. He directed his first film a year later, What's Up, Tiger Lily? (1966) in 1966.

  • Ranked #43 in Empire (UK) magazine's Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time list (October 1997).
  • According to 'Mia Farrow' (qv)'s biography, "What Falls Away", 'Frank Sinatra' (qv) offered to have Allen's legs broken when he was found to be having an affair with her adopted daughter, 'Soon-Yi Previn' (qv).
  • The _"Seinfeld" (1990)_ (qv) character George Constanza was originally planned to be a caricature of him.
  • Both of his grandfathers were immigrants, one of Austro-Jewish descent and the other of Russo-Jewish descent.
  • Although he is barely interested in awards, he's one of the Academy's favorites - his 14 Oscar Nominations for Best Original Screenplay as of 2005 are a record for that category, and puts him ahead of 'Billy Wilder' (qv), who had 19 combined Oscar nominations for Writing and Directing. With 21 nominations in the combination of the top-three categories--acting, directing and writing--he holds the record there as well.
  • Biography in "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald L. Smith, pp. 13-16. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
  • Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#89) (1995).
  • Son of bookkeeper 'Martin Konigsberg' (qv) (December 25, 1900-January 13, 2001) and his wife 'Nettie Konigsberg' (qv) (November 8, 1906-January 27, 2002).
