The Emmy's are 9/22 and Fosse/Verdon has earned 17 nominations! Revisit 1972's CABARET to see Bob Fosse's work on the big screen!
After the box office failure of his film version of Sweet Charity in 1969, Bob Fosse bounced back with Cabaret in 1972, a year that made him the most honored director in the movie business. The film also brought Liza Minnelli, the daughter of Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli, her own first chance to sing on screen, and she won the Academy Award for Best Actress.
Holding a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, the Critics Consensus: "Great performances and evocative musical numbers help Cabaret secure its status as a stylish, socially conscious classic."
Synopsis: Adapted from the Broadway show, this hard-hitting musical drama is set in decadent 1930s Berlin during Hitler's rise to power. The film chronicles Cambridge student Brian Roberts' friendship with the high-spirited Sally Bowles, a singer at the sleazy Kit Kat nightclub, where the anti-Semitic emcee sets a tone of debauchery.
