Trivia

While this is Woody Allen's least favorite of the movies he has directed, this was the most commercially successful film of his career. He said years later that he was still in disbelief that he "got away with it".

It seems inexcusable that both Jill and Jill's editor did not know that, by writing about her and Isaac's marriage in her book, that she was setting herself up for a huge libel and defamation lawsuit, since Isaac (Woody Allen) was a private citizen and his privacy rights were grossly violated, even at the time the movie was made.


Crazy Credits

One of the very few Woody Allen films to not have traditional opening credits, save the production company bumper (United Artists), and the film title MANHATTAN is seen as a long vertical flashing bright neon sign, located on the side of a New York City building, and is seen for under seven seconds just before Woody Allen narrates his first line.
