Can't beat Fosse choreography and some of the great dancers. Love to look into the real life of dancers back then. Gets a bit weird in the end, but still worth it.

The first seven minutes is worth the whole movie. I saw the film originally in a movie theatre in 1979, hadn't seen it since, and still remembered the "On Broadway" open call sequence, with no dialogue, at the start. Fantastic modern dance sequence. Oh, and yes the shower, Vivaldi, eye drop, Dexedrine morning ritual of Joe Gideon (he even looks like Bob Fosse ) was also memorable after 30 or so years.

Interesting look at the Broadway scene and all that goes into the making of a musical/dance
production. The movie has many incredible dance numbers.

The path to self-destruction has never looked better or more interesting. When I go I hope it's a huge musical production with appearances by Ben Vereen and Jessica Lange.
