James Hancock Slaps Himself Silly Over Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’ (1979)


By James Hancock

New York is a city with an incredible number of iconic film locations but it is hard to think of a more classic shot than Woody Allen and Diane Keaton watching the sunrise by the Queensboro Bridge. We went in search of the exact spot where Woody Allen shot his famous scene in order to set the stage for our trailer commentary to his classic film ‘Manhattan’ (1979). If you stick around after the credits you can watch James Hancock slap himself with frustration after butchering about 10 takes.


Many thanks to Parker Dixon for shooting and editing this video and if you’d like to see us do more videos like this around New York, give us a shout on Twitter and let us know what locations you’d like us to find.
