History of the day for July 20

In 1963, Woody Allen directs his first film. Almost completely unknown today, it is actually a light musical about two happy people in love. It is panned by critics, and one close friend of Allen's advises him to "write what he knows instead." Allen responds, "Write what I know? All I know is how to be a neurotic, sex-crazed Jew in New York!" Thus a career is born.
