Dick Cavett Interviews Woody Allen (1971)

I first came across this interview when I was reading Eric Lax's great biography of Woody Allen a couple of years ago, and as a result was eager to explore examples of Woody's early career as described there.  When I first encountered it, of course, there were six parts to this interview, and I watched the entire thing; that's since been removed, but I thought when it came to repost something today on the occasion of Woody's 75th birthday the clip where he talks about psychoanalysis somehow seemed the most apt for these proceedings.

Watch it and savour the interplay between its inherently earthy Woody-ness and its Cavett-y insouciance... Or whatever.
