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.
The role of Billy Flynn was offered several times to John Travolta before eventually going to Richard Gere. This is the fourth film that Travolta has turned down and Gere accepted; the other three are: American Gigolo (1980), Days of Heaven (1978), and An Officer and a Gentleman (1982). Travolta has said that he deeply regrets declining the part.
Let's go, babe!
Roxie: But I didn't even meet your friend. The one I was suppose to meet.
Fred Casely: It's ok, Roxie. It's all ready taken care of.
Roxie: You told him about me?
When Velma and Roxie are dancing in the final scene, they come out with the guns, and start dancing with them. They put the guns down on the stage and walk away to do a cartwheel. In the shot of their actual cartwheels, the guns are suddenly placed in a stand. But when they pick them up, the stands have disappeared.
The end credits are written in Broadway lights.
