Shadows and Fog (1992)
Allen's homage to German Expressionist cinema is filled with music by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill. Listen carefully and you'll hear " Alabama Song" during the scene when a circus clown ( John Malkovich) is searching frantically for his sword-swallowing girlfriend ( Mia Farrow). The song was composed in 1927 and was later incorporated in the Brecht-Weill opera "The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny."
