Woody Allen: Gordon was the one who said to me, when we do the split screen with the shrink, I with my shrink and she with another one. He said: “Don’t do split screen, build it. Build a set with a divider in the middle, so you’re both live. It’ll look like a split screen, but it won’t be.”
Gordon Willis: That was a revelation to him at that point, ‘cause that meant both actors could do the scene without being interrupted with doing half a scene and half a scene and put it together optically.
