The Happy Couple: I am shallow and empty and I have absolutely nothing to say!

I find it extremely amusing that almost 30 years ago Woody Allen was filming ideas and stereotypes still very much current today. Here is the answer to the simple question Woody Allen asked of a young happy couple: What is the secret of your success as a couple?

The second gem from the same movie, Annie Hall (1977, see IMDB) comes when the very Marshall McLuhan comes forward to rescue Woody in a heated discussion with a fellow moviegoer.

Sure, the recursion in this segment is genial: Woody and friends are as moviegoers as you and me while we watch them; and McLuhan talks about himself, straightening some points poorly understood by someone, and doing so, he addresses movie watchers directly.

If only life were like this!
