Trademarks:Frequently plays a neurotic New Yorker Frequently casts himself, Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow and Judy Davis A lot of his movies feature at least one character who is a writer. This is often Woody himself. Nearly all of his films start and end with white-on-black credits, set in the Windsor typeface, set to jazz music, without any scrolling. Films his dialog using long, medium-range shots instead of the typical intercut close-ups His films are almost all set in New York City His characters (that he plays himself) are often a semi-famous, semi-successful film/tv writer, director, or producer... or a novelist His thick black glasses, the same type since the 1960s From Stardust Memories (1980) through Melinda and Melinda (2004), frequently and almost exclusively employs Dick Hyman to contribute musical arrangements, incidental music, and piano accompaniment. From Sleeper (1973) until Cassandra's Dream (2007), almost never has his movies scored, preferring to use selections from his vast personal record collection. Billing his actors alphabetically on opening credits His films often include opening Narration or the protagonist talking directly to the audience His female characters are often free spirited but naive and often come from small town backgrounds References to famous writers and literary classics References to classic films, particularly the works of Ingmar Bergman Brooklyn Accent Stumbling and nervous delivery Often bases films on his own life experiences His unchanging nebbish persona Short stature Reddish hair
