Sweet Charity
Rated
Fellini's Nights of Cabiria, Broadway- musicalized by Neil Simon, Fields & Coleman, with Shirley MacLaine in perhaps her ultimate "hooker" role, following in the tawdry-poignant, aching heel footsteps of Guilleta Masina. This was the first feature Bob Fosse directed and though he's gone a bit '60s wild with the camera and cutting, every musical number is a knockout. (Indeed the choreography on "Hey Big Spender" is as good as he's ever done.) Sweet Charity flopped, but its possible in some ways to prefer it to Fosse's second movie, Cabaret. I do, and not just because of Shirley, who, admittedly, pushes a bit hard.
