Annie Hall

Annie Hall (1977)

Other mistake: In the end credits, Christopher Walken's name is listed as 'Christopher Wlaken'.

Visible crew/equipment: At the very beginning of the scene where Alvy and Annie are arguing over Annie's adult education teacher, David, and Annie is getting into the cab, a film crew member is visible up the sidewalk, just above the roof of the cab. As the scene starts, he drops his arm as a timing signal to the old woman carrying a grocery bag to begin her walk into the scene, where, seconds later, Alvy turns to ask her a question.

Continuity mistake: Alvy and Max are walking down the street talking about (among other things) the fact that Alvy is on his way to meet Annie at the Beekman Theater. Alvy is wearing a black or navy blue T-shirt under his button-down flannel shirt. Shortly afterwards, when he's waiting in front of the theater, he's wearing the same clothes, but the T-shirt is now gray.

Trivia: In the scene in which Alvy and Annie are watching people in the park and Alvy comments, "Oh, there goes the winner of the Truman Capote Look-Alike Contest," the passer by is actually Truman Capote, in an un-credited cameo.

Question: I couldn't understand the joke in the beginning ("In such small portions"). Can someone explain it to me, please.

Answer: Woody says "There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly." The 2nd old lady is complaining about the small portions of terrible food, as if large portions of terrible food would be better.
