The Character: 17-year-old student (played by Mariel Hemingway) who dates Woody's older man Isaac in Manhattan .
Best Line: "Not everybody gets corrupted. You have to have a little faith in people."
How Woody-Esque? Uncomfortably so.
The Character: The ghost of the late Hollywood star (played by Jerry Lacy), who doles out advice to Woody's character, Allan Felix, in Play It Again, Sam .
Best Line: Bogart tells Allan to move closer for a kiss. How close? "The length of your lips."
How Woody-Esque? The whole point is that Woody is nothing like Bogie.
The Character: Lonely housewife who finds refuge from her unhappy marriage in the local cinema - and who finds fantasy bleeding into reality when movie character Tom Baxter comes to life.
Best Line: "I just met a wonderful new man. He's fictional but you can't have everything."
How Woody-Esque? The finest role Woody ever gave to his long-term lover Mia Farrow during their professional relationship - and it's about somebody enchanted with cinema.
The Character: Blowsy, suicidal Spaniard who can't keep away from stormy lover Juan Antonio in Vicky Cristina Barcelona .
Best Line: To Juan Antonio - "you'll always seek to duplicate what we had. You know it."
How Woody-Esque? A suitably tempestuous, Oscar-winning performance by Penélope Cruz highlights the divide with the more Woody-esque Vicky (Rebecca Hall).
The Character: Human chameleon who found fame in the early 20th Century for his ability to change his appearance and character to fit in wherever he is - even if that means Nazi Germany.
Best Line: "I'm treating two sets of Siamese twins with split personalities. I'm getting paid by eight people."
How Woody-Esque? For once, Woody submerges his usual personality to suit Zelig's intriguing character.
The Character: Neurotic? Check. Sex-obsessed? Sure. New Yorker? To the core. Funny? Yep, Alvy's the deliverer of some of Woody's best ever gags.
Best Line: "Hey, don't knock masturbation. It's sex with someone I love."
How Woody-Esque? As star of the transition from Allen's "early, funny ones" to a more searching, self-reflective autobiographical type of filmmaking, Alvy couldn't be any more like Woody if he tried.
The Character: One of the sisters in Hannah And Her Sisters , Holly is a recovering addict and a failed actress who is forever in the shadow of her family.
Best Line: "My stupid roller-skating joke. I should never tell jokes. Mom can tell 'em and Hannah, but I kill 'em."
How Woody-Esque? A gift of a role for Oscar-winning Dianne Wiest, who makes Holly fragile, flawed but still fabulous - note she gets Woody in one of the director's most hopeful endings.
The Character: Martin Landau was Oscar-nominated for his performance in Crimes And Misdemeanors , as a man so terrified that his lover will reveal their affair that he has her killed.
Best Line: "If you want a happy ending, you should go see a Hollywood movie."
How Woody-Esque? One of the best examples of Allen writing a character to be the polar opposite of the Woody "type," in this case the director's own role as Cliff Stern.
The Character: The object of Alvy Singer's affection, breezing through life in bohemian dress and a "la-di-da" attitude.
Best Line: When Alvy won't smoke weed before sex, Annie replies, "You've been seeing a psychiatrist for 15 years. You should smoke some of this. You'd be off the couch in no time."
How Woody-Esque? The character for whom Woody will always be remembered as writer and director was, give or take, an exact likeness of the actress who played her, Diane Keaton.
The Character: Middle-aged writer in the throes of juggling various relationships in Manhattan , who "has complaints about life but never any solutions" and idolises New York out of all proportion.
Best Line: "I think people should mate for life, like pigeons or Catholics."
How Woody-Esque? Perhaps the director's most honest self-portrait of the lot.
