Monday's the day we honour our founder. Well, the man who (sort of) named the blog, Woody Allen. This week we're going with a quote from his 1979 black and white masterpiece, Manhattan.
In it, Woody, 42, dates a 17 year-old Muriel Hemingway. Nothing wrong there. And certainly no sign of any troubles to come. All completely fine.
Anyway, it's very funny, is the point. And here's what he says to Diane Keaton's character, who he starts dating half way through the film, in the back of a yellow cab:
"You look so beautiful tonight I can hardly keep my eyes on the meter."
