Allen did have a groundbreaking film here. It was the first of its kind of comedy to make fun of the machismo gangster flicks, by casting a short, neurotic nebbish in the part of the usual tough guy role. Some of the funniest scenes in here include Woody's escape from a chain gang, with five other prisoners chained with him; his attempt to play cello in a marching band; and a side-splitting moment in which he tries to rob a bank, using a misspelled note. Allen has done many better works then this, but rarely with as many great sight gags.
