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.
Cinematographer Dion Beebe was on his way to a theater in London to watch the musical when he got a phone call from his agent telling him that director Rob Marshall was interested in having him shoot the film.
Assistant District Attorney Martin Harrison:
This is hanging case, and we're ready to go to in front of the jury tomorrow.
Roxie: Wha-Wha-What do you mean hanging?
Assistant District Attorney Martin Harrison: You're not so tough now, are you?
Roxie: What do ya mean hanging?
During the Roxie Hart song, right after she sings "who says murders not an art" Roxie walks past a line of mirrors. Halfway through the shot the camera crew is visible in the refection just to the right of Roxie.
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.
