It seemed no one of note had appreciated their act. “Televised Beatlemania,” wrote the New York Times TV critic, “appeared to be a fine…

An attorney for filmmaker Woody Allen said Tuesday that while Dylan Farrow sincerely believes her adoptive father molested her as a child, that this was a false memory implanted by her mother.
