Leonard Zelig (Allen) is a social quick-change artist whose neurotic insecurity forces him to mimic--mentally and physically--whomever he's with.

But when misdeeds from Zelig's multiple-personality past start to surface (larceny, bigamy and an unauthorized appendectomy), the human chameleon is on the run again, and Eudora must search the world over to find--and save--the only man who's every man she's ever wanted!

Stardust memories by Woody Allen( Visual )

10 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sharp, satirical look at the high price of fame, Woody Allen's Stardust Memories is a "wickedly funny" (The New York Times) story about a disillusioned filmmaker who is just about at the end of his rope. Sparkling with the confidence of an artist in full bloom, Stardust Memories is "a film to be seen and savored" (Jeffery Lyons)! Legendary comic filmmaker Sandy Bates (Allen) is tired of being funny. Teetering on the brink of a nervous breakdown, Bates attends a weekend retrospective of his films, only to confront the meaning of his work, the memories of his great love, Dorrie (Charlotte Rampling), and the merits of settling down with new girlfriend, Isobel (Marie-Christine Barrault). Plagued by hallucinations, alien visitations and the bloodless studio executives trying to re-cut his bleak new film, Bates struggles to find a reason to go on living. But when he falls prey to a gun-wielding fanatic, his zany brush with death reveals that there is value to his own existence, and that often, the best reason to go on living is life itself

Radio days by Woody Allen( Visual )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grazie alla voce narrante di Joe, la narrazione introduce lo spettatore a Rockaway, vicino Brooklyn, tra la fine degli anni Trenta e l'inizio degli anni Quaranta. Joe è un bambino che vive in una singolare famiglia ebrea che fa accompagnare ogni sua azione, ogni più piccolo avvenimento dai programmi radiofonici Joe, che ha nel 'Vendicatore mascherato' il suo idolo, conduce un'esistenza non troppo agiata: nella stessa abitazione convive tutta la famiglia della madre, formata, oltre dai genitori del bambino (un padre di cui non si conosce la professione e una madre che discute con il marito su qualunque cosa, anche sulla grandezza degli oceani), dallo zio Abe (soggetto di scarsa personalità che porta ogni giorno a casa una gran quantità di pesce fresco), dalla moglie Ceil (che sogna una vita lussuosa ma si trova ogni giorno a dover pulire il pesce che il marito porta a casa), dall'altra zia Bea (che sogna il grande amore), dalla cugina Ruth (che ascolta le telefonate dei vicini) e dai grotteschi nonni. Parallelamente si assiste alla vita non meno singolare delle stars della radio. Sally è una sigaraia che decide di fare carriera a tutti i costi: un giorno assiste all'omicidio del padrone del night in cui lavora, ma il killer, invece di ucciderla, l'aiuta tramite un cugino mafioso ad entrare nel mondo dello spettacolo. I giorni si susseguono, e così anche i ricordi legati alle canzoni trasmesse alla radio: scoppia la Guerra e l'annuncio è dato radiofonicamente, così come la terribile notizia della morte di una bambina rimasta intrappolata in un pozzo, fino ad arrivare al Capodanno del 1944, durante il quale, al King Cole Room, un locale alla moda, confluiscono tutti i nomi famosi della radio, compresa Sally che nel frattempo ha fatto carriera, mentre a casa di Joe la famiglia è collegata alla serata tramite l'apprezzata scatola parlante
