No curbing of enthusiasm for Woody Allens new film
Last week, director Woody Allen was filming around the East Village for his new, as-yet-untitled movie. Allen and his cast of actors have drawn crowds as he has used local eateries for location shoots, including Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery on E. Houston St. and Cafe Mogador on St. Marks Pl. Clockwise from top left, Allen in his directors chair; and actors, Clifford Lee Dickson; an unidentified cast member; and Larry David of Seinfeld fame and Curb Your Enthusiasm, far left, and Michael McKean of This Is Spinal Tap and Laverne and Shirley sharing a joke. According to reports, the movie is about older people.
