A stunning film: Liza Minelli is truly knockout - sadly never to again have such a perfectly fitted role - and Fosse's choreography is superb - reinforced by brilliant photography, lighting, and editing. Joel Gray as Emcee matches and supports her impeccably - and their "Money" duet is just wonderful.
Loving this film, I paid to see it several times in the cinema, and have bought several versions of the DVD since - always hopeful of a proper-format screen-filler appropriate for all those fabulous shots and routines. In vain!
Why, why, why....isn't this barnstormer of a film available yet in a proper anamorphic transfer?
Is the argument that it's been out long enough that everyone who wanted this film will have already bought it? So there won't be a big enough market for a new version?
NO....! I think that all the lovers of this film would absolutely flock to buy a top-quality anamorphic transfer. But please shout that it's NEW on the cover - don't try to fool us again with any more letter-box mini-versions. No-one should be palming off these versions in 2011!!! Cameron gave us an anamorphic Titanic after the initial shoddy letterbox-version. It's time this was done for Fosse's gem!
