Fosse's semi-autobiographical film celebrates show business stripped of glamor or giddy illusions. The director's energetic choreography and some exhilarating musical moments compensate for self-indulgence and an overlong finale. Academy Award Nominations: 9, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--Roy Scheider, Best Original Screenplay. Academy Awards: 3, including Best Art Direction and Best Original Song Score.
"All That Jazz" is allegedly heavily based on filmmaker Bob Fosse's own life. The film features Fosse's choreography in all of the dance scenes which are shot from many angles to give viewers an excellent view of the dance. The film credits the open heart surgery sequence to the Cardiac Surgical Team at St. Luke's Hospital Center in New York City, John E. Hutchinson III, Senior Surgeon. Dick DiBona arranged the photography for the sequence. The patient is not identified.
