"...MacLaine and an eclectic cast aided by an ebullient score and pretty good dancing keep things aloft..."
Choreographer-turned-director Bob Fosse made his feature film debut with this glitzy screen version of the hit Broadway musical. The star of the show is Charity, a warm-hearted taxi-dancer who longs to "go straight" by marrying a decent guy and settling down to a career as a dental technician. But her trusting nature and dangerously naive outlook on life make the dance hall girl prey for a succession of opportunistic men. Used and abused and finally jilted at the altar, Charity's innocent spirit remains uncrushed, soaring out in the film's collection of lavishly choreographed song and dance routines. Songs include "Big Spender," "If My Friends Could See Me Now," and "Rhythm of Life."
