  • The film was shot on location in New York City. The part of Carol Lipton was originally meant for Mia Farrow, but Woody and Mia were undergoing well-publicized problems at the time. Well known for his attendance at New York Knicks home games at Madison Square Garden, Allen begins MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY with a scene at the Garden--but it's a New York Rangers-Washington Capital hockey game. The film includes a clip from DOUBLE INDEMNITY, the 1944 film noir classic about infidelity and murder. The Richard Wagner opera Larry and Carol go to see in the film is DER FLIEGENDE HOLLANDER. The song over the opening credits is Bobby Short singing Cole Porter's "I Happen to Like New York"; in HANNAH AND HER SISTERS, there is a scene of Woody Allen at a Bobby Short performance at the Carlyle Hotel in New York. MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY is Allen's twenty-third feature film. The prolific director makes it a practice to try to make one film a year. Muze Movies Supervisor Mark Rifkin was caught by Allen and Keaton walking down the street, ruining one of the shots; Rifkin was later at the very same hockey game that begins the film.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...At its amiable best, the new film offers glimmers of its stars' charming, quarrelsome old teamwork....Gratifyingly gentle and uncomplicated..."
    New York Times

    "...This confection keeps the chuckles coming....As neurotic a farce as can be imagined, and Allen and Brickman have amusingly festooned the plot with an array of topical and psychological concerns..."

    "...MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY is an accomplished balancing act..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Keaton snoops, husband Woody is humiliated, and a bravura finale honors a legendary scene (no fair specifying) in film noir history..."
