    The court said that there was nothing sexual about his "inappropriately intense" interest with Dylan. It does not say that any of his behavior was inappropriate

    Yes, I saw it. Your Slate article and the Daily Beast article I linked to contradict one another on points of fact. Who are you going to believe? Your choice.

    Re: Woody Allen - Pedophile?

    How old was his other adopted child when he married her?

    Edit] His wife's adopted child.

    After marrying a 16yr old (ok, I know he was 19 himself) and a relationship with a 17 yr old previously...who knows what else.

    Edit again] from Wiki: Farrow discovered nude photographs that Allen had taken of Soon-Yi...

    Give me a break. Would you leave him alone with your grandmother, never mind a defenseless child?

    Apart from anything else, Mia Farrow looks like a child...

    Well, I agree that a 55 yr old marrying a 20 yr old is disgusting but not illegal and should not be used as a rationale for thinking that he is guilty of sexual contact with a 7 yr old. At the time the supposed incident happened, it was 4 months after Mia found nude pictures of Soon-Yi in Woody's possession and this caused an end to their 12 yr relationship. There is something suspicious about Woody doing something at that time, with Mia in the house, to do something like that when he had numerous chances earlier. Mia sounds like a scorned woman out for revenge who poisoned her own children against Woody. This happens all the time. I imagine that Woody is not the best parent material and not loved by his children but that is not a crime either.

    So, what are your thoughts on Woody Allen?

    Is he a pedophile?

    Creepy bastard?

    Harmless Peepaw?

    Legendary director and actor?

    Should legal action be taken immediately?
    I am not sure he is a pedophile, he did marry the daughter of his partner. He did not adopt that child (Mia Farrow did that with her previous husband) and he was not married with Mia Farrow so he was not the stepfather of that child.

    We do not have any evidence that he had an inappropriate relationship with Soon Yi before she turned 18 and there is no evidence that he had an inappropriate relationship with the girl that is now claiming that he did. Innocent until proven otherwise on the pedophilia issue but what has not happened now might still happen (though unlikely IMHO after all this time).

    But he is a creepy perv to have a sexual relation with a girl that he had a "father-like" relationship with.

    Re: Woody Allen - Pedophile?

    "Director Woody Allen made headlines in 1992 when, at the age of 56, it was revealed that he was in a relationship with 21-year-old Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow, his girlfriend of over 10 years and the leading lady in 13 of his films.
    Farrow discovered the relationship when she found nude photos of Previn taken in Allen's Manhattan duplex, according to a 1992 People magazine article. The revelation sent Allen's name in the headlines and played out in court in a custody battle over Farrow and Allen's biological son Satchel.
    ...
    Allen and Previn wed in December 1997 in Venice, Italy and have two adopted daughters. Back in 1992, Soon-Yi Previn told Time magazine she never considered Allen a father figure in her life.

    "To think that Woody was in any way a father or stepfather to me is laughable. My parents are Andre Previn and Mia, but obviously they're not even my real parents," Previn said at the time. "I came to America when I was seven. I was never remotely close to Woody. He was someone who was devoted exclusively to his own children and to his work, and we never spent a moment together." ... "

    Afternoon shrubnose, I just don't know what to think.

    Mia Farrow and Vanity Fair have a long standing relationship since the very beginning of this saga heavily influenced by the interviews with Farrow. The more recent one was last year when she stated that her son Rowan could possibly be Frank Sinatra's. When they investigated the claim, Nancy Sinatra sent emails claiming Rowan was a big part of us. He does have Sinatra's eyes.
    Then you have two of the children's nannies that gave testimony at the sex abuse trial. One nanny, Monica Thompson, said she was pressured into agreeing to the telling of the molestation story then recanted her original statement and was called to testify at the trial. Through Monica's testimony another nanny was mentioned Kristie Groteke, Dylan's baby-sitter, drove her to the bus, and her fellow employee was "very upset." "She told me that she felt guilty allowing Ms. Farrow to say those things about Mr. Allen. (Groteke) said the day Mr. Allen spent with the kids, she did not have Dylan out of her sight for longer than five minutes. She did not remember Dylan being without her underwear." Which was something Mia Farrow claimed. Kristie Groteke was subpoenaed to testify also.

    Nanny Casts Doubt on Farrow Charges : Custody: She tells Allen's lawyers the actress pressured her to support molestation accusations against him. She says others have reservations. - Los Angeles Times

    Later Groteke wrote a book about her employment there during the custody trial. She never makes the claim that Allen molested his daughter but does bring up the possibility that the child may have been coerced into stating so. And she tells that after Mia found out about Soon-Yi and Allen, Mia was working on a Allen's Hannah and her Sisters and did not stop filming and continued to have dinner with him and talked to him daily. Now does that sound like someone who feared for Allen to be around her children?

    The pieces to the puzzle just aren't fitting together at least not to the point I can say he is guilty.

    Are you talking about Woody Allen and Soon-Yi, or about Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra?

    Re: Woody Allen - Pedophile?

    I'll wait until there is a trial with complete evidence before I form an opinion. I don't think that his being with a seventeen year old makes him that much more likely to have molested the young children. I also don't necessarily trust the claims of the Farrow kids due to the years of influence from the openly bitter mother. Such claims should be taken seriously and investigated, but the satanic child abuse scares of the 1980s (McMartin et al) show that authority figures can and will induce false accusations from children and adults, especially when hypnotism is used.
