Movies Under the Stars - Bob Fosse - August 17, 8:30 pm
Sweet Charity, (1969) ... Starring: Shirley MacLaine, Chita Rivera and Sammy Davis, Jr. ... Director: Bob Fosse ... Shirley MacLaine triumphs as Charity Hope Valentine, an incurable optimist who happens to work at a seedy dime-a-dance joint. A hooker with a heart of gold, Charity's search for true love is beautifully captured in Fosse's stylistic film debut and features signature Fosse choreography and musical gems by the incomparable Cy Coleman.
Wednesday, August 17, 8:30pm, Riverside Park South, Pier I @ 70th Street ... bring a chair, blanket and picnic!
Peter appraised Bob Fosse's estate ... had the opportunity to examine and hold his Oscar ... see you at the movie!
