Screening: BFI Musicals: Sweet Charity (1969)

Bob Fosse’s 1969 musical comedy-drama Sweet Charity stars the great Shirley MacLaine alongside an all-star ensemble cast including Sammy Davis Jr (performing `Rhythm of Life’ in a brilliant musical scene) and Ricardo Montalbán and is based on the script of Fellini’s Nights of Cabiria.

Charity Hope Valentine (MacLaine) always tries to look on the bright side of life, despite working in a rundown dance hall and contending with a seemingly endless run of bad dates. Determined to find love, she falls for actor Vittorio Vidal (Montalban), but their romance is short-lived. However, when she finds herself stuck in an elevator with the reserved Oscar Lindquist (John McMartin), it seems she may have finally met her match.

Boasting amazing costumes (by Edith Head), fantastic songs (such as `Hey, Big Spender’) and dance sequences (including `Rich Man’s Frug’), the heart of the film nevertheless belongs to the Golden Globe-nominated MacLaine, who is splendidly charming, funny and forthright as the ever optimistic Charity Hope Valentine.

After snarky youth Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) loses track of his father at the airport, he mistakenly gets on a plane headed for New York City — while the rest of the McCallisters fly to Florida. Now alone in the Big Apple, Kevin cons his way into a room at the Plaza Hotel and begins his usual antics. But when Kevin discovers that the Sticky Bandits (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) are on the loose, he struggles to stop them from robbing an elderly man’s toy store just before Christmas.
