then and now: CAST of HANNAH AND HER SISTERS (1986)

It may come as a surprise that my somewhat unorthodox choice of favorite Woody Allen movie is not 1977's Annie Hall. Nope, it just so happens that 1986's Hannah and Her Sisters is one of my all-time favorites. I can't help but love the pushover eldest Hannah, the artsy and indecisive middle daughter Lee, and the sometimes high on cocaine aspiring actress and writer Holly. And to give you a glimpse of the early and recent work of its great cast, I've devoted a Then and Now column to Holly, Lee, Elliot, April, Mickey, and, of course, Hannah.

Mia Farrow as Hannah

In a 1964 episode of the TV series Peyton Place
And in the 2008 film Be Kind Rewind

Michael Caine as Elliot

In the 1956 film A Hill in Korea
And in the 2010 film Inception

Dianne Wiest as Holly

In the 1978 TV movie Out of Our Father's House
And in a 2009 episode of the TV series In Treatment

Woody Allen as Mickey

In the 1965 film What's New Pussycat?
And in the 2006 film Scoop

It's not such an odd choice, mine is "Stardust Memories". Mia was so beautiful!
