Discussion between films with assistant choreographer Kathryn Doby and first A.D. Wolfgang Glattes.
1972, Warner Bros., 123 min, USA, Dir: Bob Fosse

In decadent 1930s Berlin, impulsive and morally liberal agent provocateur Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) meets the scholarly and handsome Bryan (Michael York) and the two develop an intimate relationship while unknowingly sharing a bisexual lover. Winner of eight Oscars, including Best Director, Actress and Supporting Actor (Joel Grey, as the Kit Kat Klub's reptilian Master of Ceremonies).

1979, 20th Century Fox, 123 min, USA, Dir: Bob Fosse

This intense, compelling musical based on the life of its director-choreographer-screenwriter, Bob Fosse, won the Palme D’Or at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival. Roy Scheider was Oscar-nominated for his performance (the film earned 9 nominations and 4 wins) as an obsessed, womanizing, pill-popping, chain-smoking Broadway choreographer and director who pays the ultimate price for his insane, creative lifestyle; kudos go to Ann Reinking playing his patient mistress. The movie probably has the only musical number set during open-heart surgery. With Jessica Lange, Cliff Gorman, Ben Vereen.
