"...[BROADWAY DANNY ROSE] proceeds so sweetly and so illogically that it seems to have been spun....One of [Allen's] very best..."

Product Description:

A lovable schlub of a Broadway agent struggles to revive the sagging careers of of his motley clients. His misguided efforts to get a fading lounge singer's career back on track land him right in the middle of a gangland battle.

Plot Synopsis:

A group of Borscht Belt comedians gathers at the Carnegie Deli to reminisce and tell anecdotes about showbiz legend Danny Rose. Danny is a no-luck Broadway talent agent with a heart of gold who shepherds his flock of dead-end performers with a sense of compassion and loyalty that borders on lunacy. The few sad-sack clients of his who managed to garner some modicum of success ended up dropping Rose like a hot potato. Then along comes full-bodied Lou Canova, a throwback crooner with golden tonsils. Danny realizes that Lou has the ability to go somewhere, given the current nostalgia craze, and he coddles the big guy hoping that he'll be his ticket out of palookaville. Rose eventually finagles a gig at the Waldorf; with Milton Berle in the audience scouting talent for his new television special, this could be Canova's big night. But Lou's troubled love life throws a shroud over the entire evening. The married singer has a girlfriend with mob connections, and after an argument with Canova she refuses to go to the show. Lou starts drinking again and in the midst of a mawkish emotional tirade threatens to cancel the performance if she doesn't show up. Danny must somehow infiltrate a Mob wedding and get the blonde moll to the Waldorf on time; if he fails, his last, best hope for success will go down the drain.

Production Notes:

  • Shot in Todd-AO.
  • Woody Allen told the New York Daily News in January 2001, "Michael Badalucco started as a furniture mover on my sets, asked for an acting role and he was terrific, a natural. I'm not surprised he's won an Emmy as a regular in THE PRACTICE." Badalucco has a bit part in BROADWAY DANNY ROSE.
