Allen and Keaton had the best chemistry, but the Allen-Farrow collaboration was the best if you take the whole set of films, I mean, sure you have Love and Death, Annie Hall, Sleepers, Manhattan, Interiors and Manhattan Murder Mystery, but I don't think it beats Zelig, Broadway Danny Rose, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Hannah and Her Sisters, Another Woman and Husbands and Wives. Radio Days had both.

I think people would vote for the chemistry and Keaton will probably win this poll, but with the exception of Interiors and Manhattan Murder Mystery, Keaton belongs to the zany/romantic comedy period while Farrow contributed to Allen's 80's work, I don't think any director had a more winning streak than Allen in the 80's.

 Woody Allen with Keaton I'd probably go for. But he made excellent films with both women, the man could simply do no wrong!

'Good face-off! Keaton but the collaborations with both were great. Right now, for instance, I'm thinking of Crimes & Misdemeanors, which is one of my favorite films, of course so is Manhattan, lol. Even thought Keaton is one of my favorites ever, the specific question this poll asks is a tough one, which is one reason I like it so much. :)

I'm wondering if the Allen/Keaton photo won't crop well. I'm guessing Woody would be largely out out. What a shame because it's a great photo.

Here are some possible alternatives.

The Farrow/Allen photo would probably be ok but she might get cut out a bit. The more to the center they are, the better. If you view the list in grid mode, that's usually a good approximation of how photos will crop.

I think that it would crop ok.

Did you view your list it in grid mode? If nothing is cut off in grid mode, it should be fine when it goes live. At the bottom of the intro area, right above where the actually list starts, look to the right of that top intro part, and you should see three little icons: one is for the regular "list" mode, one if for a different list mode, and the first one, I think, is for "grid" mode. You can do that for any list you make to make sure things crop ok -- it's especially useful when making image lists because that's when the images appear on lists as squares so cropping can be a problem.

Anyway, my guess is that it should crop well. :) If not, you can always replace it and request a re-push after it goes live.

rube, 

When I look at an image list in the default view, I don't see the icons. I only see them once I manually switch to the grid view by editing the URL.

However, I don't think the grid view is really relevant here. Face-Offs don't typically appear in the home page, and the home page is the only place that uses the poster format for poll images. The poll itself uses square thumbnails, so the cropping can be determined from the default image list or the list edit view.

Isn't the question a bit odd? Is it the actresses or the partnerships that were fruitful? I would suggest:

Between these two actresses who had a long-term partnership with Woody Allen, which partnership seems to be more fruitful?

Oh..thanks for the correction!

Even I meant to use 'one' for partnership, but didn't realize that I used it for actresses. My bad!
