Woody Allen on "60 Minutes" in the '70s and '80s

As Woody Allen premieres his 42nd film, "Midnight in Paris," we take you back to his early career, starting with his first interview on "60 Minutes" in 1974

Woody Allen's new film "Midnight in Paris" opens the 64th Cannes Film Festival this week. It's a love letter to the French capital, starring Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams, with a cameo by Carla Bruni, first lady of France. As Allen's 42nd film premieres, we thought it was time to take a look back at the young Allen, as captured by "60 Minutes" cameras from the early 1970s to the late 1980s.

In this compilation of rare interview footage, Morley Safer first meets Allen in 1974, pre-"Annie Hall," when the director was only 37 and Allen's big movie of the moment was "Sleeper."
