Spun from a stage musical also directed and choreographed by Fosse, Sweet Charity stars a winsome Shirley MacLaine as a dance-hall hostess looking for love.

Fosse fought with the producers to retain the gritty texture of both the play and the original Italian film (Federico Fellini’s Nights of Cabiria). Check out this cast: Sammy Davis Jr., Ricardo Montalbán, Chita Rivera, Toni Basil, and Bud Cort as a hippie. With splashy, wild dance numbers and extraordinary cinematic effects that make the camera one of the dancers, the film is both highly entertaining and one of the sleaziest G-rated movies ever made. (1969, 149 min, 35mm)

Cabaret, Sweet Charity, All That Jazz—something about the unsettling state of the world makes us want to revisit the unforgettable musicals of Bob Fosse.

The three musicals in this series showcase not just the dynamism of Fosse’s choreography, but also his social conscience, his compassionate view of human desire and sexuality, and his grasp of the dark side of humanity.

Thanks to the Austin Film Society, who presented this program earlier this year.
