Danny Rose (Woody Allen) is a manager of artists, and although he's not very successful, he nevertheless goes out of his way to help his acts. So when Lou Canova, a singer who has a chance of making a come-back, asks Danny to help him with a problem, Danny helps him. This problem is Lou's mistress Tina (Mia Farrow). Lou wants Tina to be at his concerts, otherwise he can't perform, but he's married, so Danny has to take her along as if she was his girlfriend. Danny however gets more than he has bargained for when two mobsters come looking for the guy who has hurt their brother by stealing the heart of Tina, the girl he loves.


otsoNY Comments: The deli owner who informs Danny Rose about the fate of one the characters in the film was really the co-owner of the legendary Carnegie Deli where the scene was shot. He was a retired comic and actor who retained his SAG card named Leo Steiner. He was only cast after the actors Woody Allen brought to the location were inadequate.

P. J. Clarke's is a famous saloon, established 1884 and occupying a building located at 915 3rd Avenue on the northeast corner of 55th Street in New York City. The bar was once owned by a Patrick J. Clarke, an Irish emigrant who was hired in the early 1900s by a Mr. Duneen who ran the saloon. After about ten years working for him Clarke bought the bar and changed the name. The building is a holdout and is surrounded by 919 3rd Avenue, a 47-story skyscraper. Clarke's former owners, the Lavezzo brothers, signed a deal in which the building housing the saloon was sold for $1.5 million and a 99-year lease was signed with Tishman Realty and Construction. However due to financial reverses the Lavezzos were forced to sell their interest to a consortium, which includes George Steinbrenner, Timothy Hutton, and others. The building was originally a four-story structure. It lost the top two floors when the skyscraper went up in the late 1960s.
