Released:

Rating:
G
Sweet Charity is the 1969 musical comedy starring Shirley MacLaine as na''ve dance hostess who keeps falling in love with her customers. Playwright Neil Simon adapted Italian auteur Federico Fellini's "Nights in Cabiria." Charity Hope Valentine (Shirley MacLaine) believes in love but has no luck with it. Charity sells herself for 10 cents a dance at a raunchy club run by Herman (Stubby Kaye). She rooms with fellow dancers Nickie (Chita Rivera) and Helene (Paula Kelly) in a rundown apartment and entertains a variety of clients from a petulant movie star, Vittorio Vidal (Ricardo Montalban), to gangster Big Daddy Brubeck (Sammy Davis Jr.). She then meets claustrophobic accountant Oscar Lindquist (John McMartin) while trapped in an elevator. He soon proposes marriage, but the uptight young man has no idea that sweet-natured Charity has a less than proper background. Directed by Bob Fosse ("Cabaret"), the movie captures the colorful "Mod" era in New York City and includes the popular tunes, "Hey, Big Spender!" and "If They Could See Me Now."moreless
