Alternative movie ending: “Play it again, Sam”

First of all, I love Woody Allen movies. I watched most of them. But sometimes I wish Woody had asked me for advice before filming. For that reason I decided to re-write some of his movies.
As a scientific mind, I do not like supernatural events, often used by Woody. I try to replace them with logical explanations.
Many times I dislike the ending of a movie, and I believe I can improve them. But after writing the first two or three endings, I decided to focus on one of my favorite movie makers, Woody. Maybe in this way he notices my creative talent and calls me for his next movie.
Lets go to Play it Again, Sam. I do not like Woody acting as a main character who is married to an actress too young and pretty for him. Without any good dramatic reasons. This happens in several of his movies, by the way. But it is obvious that Diane Keaton (Linda) will not end up with Woody (Allan), too old and ugly for her. Nevermind the fact that they were couple in the real life for many years. I do not know what did she see on him.
Shortly, the film follows Casablanca. Rick or Allan love the pretty woman (Ilse or Linda), but they step out at last moment to let space for the legitimate husband, no matter how inept.
Back to the movie, I never understood why Linda is about to fly in a plane without ever buying a ticket.
Then, I joined both facts and I propose that Linda is not allowed to fly with Dick, and decides to stay with… Bogart, which is more handsome and attractive than Woody. If Woody can see the Bogart character, maybe Linda can also see it. And go out with him.
