'Annie Hall' Premiered 46 Years Ago Today

The 46th anniversary of a film isn't all that noteworthy. But the tweet marking the occasion of the premiere of "Anne Hall" did catch my eye because of the stellar cast listed along the right. (They sure don't have lineups like that anymore!) 

 Interesting to note that of the nine principal actors, seven are still with us:

Woody Allen (1935-present)
Diane Keaton (1946-present)
Tony Roberts (1939-present)
Carol Kane (1952-present)
Paul Simon (1941-present)
Janet Margolin (1943-1993; ovarian cancer)
Shelley Duvall (1949-present)
Christopher Walken (1943-present)
Colleen Dewhurst  (1924-1991; cervical cancer)

For the record, in my childhood bedroom I had the poster for "Manhattan," all of whom are still alive:

Woody Allen (1935-present)
Diane Keaton (1946-present)
Michael Murphy (1938-present)
Mariel Hemingway (1961-present)
Meryl Streep (1949-present) 
Anne Byrne (1943-present)
