Broadway Danny Rose is a black and white 1984 Academy Award-nominated comedy written, directed by and starring Woody Allen. It was screened out of competition at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.


The plot concerns a hapless talent manager who, by helping a client, gets dragged into a love triangle involving the mob. Mia Farrow costars. The story is told in flashback, as an anecdote shared amongst a group of comedians over lunch at New York's Carnegie Delimarker. Talent agent "Broadway" Danny Rose (Allen) represents countless incompetent entertainers and one slightly talented one: washed-up lounge singer Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte), whose career is on the rebound.

Lou is having an affair with a woman, Tina (Farrow), who had previously dated a gangster. Lou wants her to accompany him to his big gig at the Waldorf Astoria, where he will perform in front of Milton Berle, who could potentially hire him for future gigs. At the singer's insistence, Danny Rose masquerades as Farrow's boyfriend to divert attention from the affair. However, Tina's ex-boyfriend is extremely jealous, and thinks that Danny's and Tina's relationship is real. He thus orders a hit on Danny, hoping he will win Tina back.
