Sweet Charity
Sweet Charity DVD - 2003 | Widescreen

VERY GOOD 1969 Bob Fosse directed film starring Shirley MacLaine with lots of great Fosse dance cuts/choreography. Just learned that the earlier 1966 stage production directed and choreographed for Broadway by Bob Fosse was based on Federico Fellini's 1957 film 'Nights of Cabiria' (Le notti di Cabiria). The 1969 film was quite engaging, but I did find the ending a bit disappointing - guess I (for whatever reason) wanted a 'happy ending', not a, um, hopeful one. It WAS interesting to see the alternate ending included on the DVD which was less sad, but the producers decided to go along with Fosse's original ending.
