Sweet Charity

Trailer Review

Orpheum · Saugerties

and    ALL SINGING ALL DANCING screening

March 27 & 28
with Katie Cokinos

A veritable who’s-who of sixties talent, Shirley MacLaine, Chita Rivera, Paula Kelly, Sammy Davis Jr., and more star in this Bob Fosse-directed and choreographed film about a down-on-her-luck taxi dancer trying to make it in the city, with hope for love and a bevy of friends to buoy her spirits. What was at first received as a slapdash song and dance, the performances and script written by Neil Simon have endured the test of time and now prove an important keystone in musical history. (dir. Bob Fosse, U.S, 1969, 149m)

“Sweet Charity is, in short, a terrific musical film….extremely handsome and plush production accomplishes everything it sets out to do.”- Variety
