- Director & Choreographer: Bob Fosse, 1969
Make sure you have 9 minutes to experience this sequence – get the kettle on – as it will inspire you to watch the whole movie: if only to see the sequence in context.

Fosse won both the Oscar and the BAFTA for his Direction on ‘Cabaret’ and the Palm D’Or for ‘All that Jazz’. His terrific stage and film career are detailed on Wikipedia – check it out.
