I read Diane Keaton’s book “Then Again” over Thanksgiving. She included a few excerpts of letters Woody Allen sent her while they were filming Love and Death.

They’re so charming and — of course — funny.

My recreation:

“I was his endearing oaf. He was my ‘White Thing,’” says Keaton. “His insights into my character were dead on and–duh!–hilarious. This bond remains the core of our friendship and, for me, love.”
