PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime, Musical
Murderesses Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart find themselves on death row together and fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows in 1920s Chicago.
Rob Marshall had previously been hired by the producers to direct The Wonderful World of Disney: Annie (1999); he had not wanted to direct that earlier film, preferring only to do choreography, but was persuaded to do both. That film's success resulted in his getting the job to direct Chicago (2002).
You were mentioned in the paper today, in the back with the obituaries. 'Velma Kelly's trial has been post-poned indefinitely.' Seven words.
There are 50 stars on the US flag in the courtroom (should be 48).
The title "CHICAGO" appears as a "C" in the middle of a zoom of Roxie's eye, then the rest of the letters light up around it.
