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.
During "All That Jazz", Velma says that even "Lucky Lindy never flew so high." This was a nickname given to pioneer aviator Charles A. Lindbergh.
You're a free woman, Roxie Hart. And God save Illinois.
At 1:28, Velma and Momma are listening to the trial on a radio. The tubes are visible, glowing white. Real tubes of that era glow with a soft orange light. If they were glowing white, they would last about an hour, if that.
There's no opening credits, save the title "CHICAGO".
