Do you still have a manual typewriter? Have you used it lately? There’s something deeply satisfying about feeling the mechanical action of the keys as they pound out your words, the “ping” when you hit return. But would you use a manual typewriter to write a screenplay when you could do it on a computer?
Woody Allen does. In this clip from the PBS American Masters series, the then-76-year-old talks about his 60-year-old typewriter, which he’s been using throughout his career. How old-school is that?
Watch, then chime in: Is this aging with attitude, or is Allen a Luddite?
