Happy Birthday Woody Allen

When asked if he wanted to achieve immortality throubgh his work, Woody Allen famously commented that he wanted to achieve immortality by not dying.

The legendary director, writer, actor, comic and show business figure turns 76 today.

And just when you thought he wouldn't make another significant film, he busts out with Midnight In Paris.

Not only was the film a critical smash (93% approval on Rotten Tomatoes), it also became Woody's top grossing U.S. film.

In addition, Woody was also the subject of a two part PBS "American Masters" documentary, by Robert Weide.

Watch Woody Allen: A Documentary Part 1 on PBS. See more from AMERICAN MASTERS.

At 76, Woody is as active and relevant as he's ever been at any point of his career. Maybe Mr. Allen will achieve his goal of immortality after all.
