Pic of the Day: “Play It Again Sam” revisited

Today’s pic is a rather unusual one. It’s another shot from a film that Timothy does not actually appear in, Herbert Ross’ Play It Again, Sam (1972), starring Woody Allen and based on his stage play. There is super-cute Diane Keaton, and just to her right is a flier for a screening of The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962).

Play It Again Sam

The film takes place in San Francisco, and we know that Sinner had several underground screenings there. It would be great to know which screening the flier is actually from. I must thank once again Tim’s old friend Michael Murphy for bringing this to my attention!

“What??” you’re saying. “Tim wasn’t in that!” He was not actually, physically, in the film, no. However – look to the far upper left of the picture. What do you see?

Play It Again, Sam (1972) was directed by Herbert Ross, from Woody Allen‘s stage play. Ross has unfortunately left us, so perhaps we could ask Woody if he knows how that flyer got there… Many thanks to Tim’s old pal Michael Murphy for pointing this out to me!
