Filmmaker Woody Allen doesn't want his name, or face, associated with American Apparel and he's none too pleased that the cotton-t-shirt-making company used an image from his 1977 film Annie Hall on a few of their billboards back in May. According to Reuters and many other sources, Allen filed suit against AA yesterday evening; he is seeking damages in excess of $10 million. The best/worst headline for an article about the event goes to the Post, with "Oh, No Jew Don't."
