Out Now On-Demand
Black-and-white comedy film written and directed by and starring Woody Allen, based on his one-act play Death. Co-stars Allen's go-to leading lady, Mia Farrow.
A serial strangler is on the loose, and a mob of neighbourhood vigilantes is on the hunt. When several neighbours wake up the skittish bookkeeper Max Kleinman (Allen), they want him to get dressed and join the search party. Finally pulling himself together, Kleinman goes downstairs to find no one waiting for him. Left to investigate alone, he winds up in one predicament after another, which eventually leads him to meet Irmy (Farrow), a sword swallower from the visiting circus.
