Films in BOLD will Air on TCM * | VIEW TCMDb ENTRY
Like many of Woody Allen's films, the soundtrack for Hannah and Her Sisters featured songs and music by some of America's greatest songwriters and composers. Among the tunes that can be heard in the background are "I've Heard That Song Before" by Jule Styne & Sammy Cahn (performed by Harry James), "I Remember You" by Victor Schertzinger & Johnny Mercer (performed by Dave Brubeck), "I'm in Love Again" by Cole Porter (performed by Bobby Short), and "You Are Too Beautiful" by Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart. In addition, you can hear some of the cast members singing snatches of popular songs such as "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" sung by Lloyd Nolan and Maureen O'Sullivan or Carrie Fisher singing "The Way You Look Tonight" and Dianne Wiest singing "I'm Old Fashioned."
Lewis Black, who made his film debut in a small role in Hannah and Her Sisters, is a playwright and popular stand-up comic. He appears often on TV on such programs as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and has supplied voices for such animated series as Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and The Brak Show.
Maureen O'Sullivan, Mia Farrow's mother, enjoyed a career revival after appearing in Hannah and Her Sisters and went on to star in Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) with Kathleen Turner & Nicholas Cage, the sci-fi drama Stranded (1987) starring Ione Skye and several made-for-TV movies such as With Murder in Mind (1992) and The Habitation of Dragons (1992), written by Horton Foote.
