Sweet Charity. Bob Fosse 1969.Chita Rivera, Paula Kelly & Shirley Maclaine,3 women in the explosive "There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This". All of the Fosse trademarks are here: the tiny movements, the athletic ending, the trend-setting camera-work, and of course the performers: Rivera's ferocious attack, Kelly and her incredible legs, and Maclaine's pixie-like joy.
She's sweet but awfully naive. That's Charity Hope Valentine, the dance-hall girl with a heart of gold and a trusting soul in "Sweet Charity." The Neil Simon-Cy Coleman musical features the well-known tunes “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now” and “I’m a Brass Band.” If you're of a certain age you might remember this as a showcase for director Bob Fosse and Broadway star Gwen Verdon.
