Plot

Fielding Mellish (a consumer products tester) becomes infatuated with Nancy (a political activist). He attends demonstrations and tries in other ways to convince her that he is worthy of her love, but Nancy wants someone with greater leadership potential. Fielding runs off to San Marcos where he joins the rebels and eventually becomes President of the country. While on a trip to the states, he meets Nancy again and she falls for him now that he is a political leader.
 

Comments

A subtle and comprehensive political satire. The point of departure is the New York or Chicago school of filmmaking. The mode of attack is the style of an independent with the construction of a wit (the budget is the same as Ritchie's Downhill Racer or The Candidate), and all the Marx Brothers rolled into one. Bananas fulfills the promise of Roger Corman's Creature From The Haunted Sea (even Last Woman On Earth), as a subtle and comprehensive political satire that leaves no stone unturned, for the pleasure of examining what crawls beneath it. The so-called "rudeness" of New Yorkers is explained by the hoodlum assault on the subway, in the next scene, Fielding Mellish calmly helps a fellow park his car by guiding him into a smash. Someone, incredibly, once asked Allen why it was called Bananas, according to a well-known story.
