4K RESTORATION OF THE COMPLETE ROADSHOW VERSION, PLUS ALTERNATE ENDING
Directed by Bob Fosse
Starring Shirley MacLaine, John McMartin, Chita Rivera, Paula Kelly, Stubby Kaye,
Sammy Davis Jr.
Approx. 160 min. DCP.
Fosse's Broadway smash — a musical version of Fellini's NIGHTS OF CABIRIA — became his feature film debut, with Shirley MacLaine taking Gwen Verdon's stage role of Charity Hope Valentine, the dancehall hostess with a heart of gold. Fosse transfers his Tony-winning choreography to the Scope screen, with highlights including "There's Got to Be Something Better Than This" — performed by MacLaine, Chita Rivera and Paula Kelly on a Manhattan rooftop — "Big Spender," "If They Could See Me Now," and Fossian takeoffs on chic disco dances and psychedelia. With Sammy Davis Jr., Ricardo Montalbán and GUYS AND DOLLS' Stubby Kaye. Screenplay by Neil Simon.
A UNIVERSAL FILMS RELEASE
Presented in association with Carnegie Hall’s Women in Music festival.
“Zoom-happy Fosse’s choreographic conceptions are intensely dramatic, and the movie has some of the best dancing in American musicals of the period.”
– Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
“A kaleidoscope of '60s kitsch and kinetic energy.”
– David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
