Bob Fosse Forever

Happy birthday, Bob Fosse. One of the most imaginative and stylish choreographers of our time. He won just about every award out there for stage and screen.

He was well established on Broadway when he directed his first film, a Hollywood adapation of his show Sweet Charity. I wouldn't say it quite works as a movie, but when we get to see a show-stopper directly important, like "Rich Man's Frug," it's all worth it.

(If I have one problem with the number, it's that the "Aloof" is so great the rest can't top it.)
