Cabaret, the musical is celebrating its 40th anniversary. The film based on the works of Christopher Isherwood, directed by Bob Fosse and with music by John Kander and Fred Ebb opened the Classic Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Oscar winning Liza Minnelli, who played the anarchic Sally Bowles says the film was more than just a musical: “What I do remember about the film is that a lot of people thought it was a frivolous musical. It’s not. It’s very interesting – about when the Nazis were taking over and Berlin was so divinely decadent.”
The 1972 film has taken over 40 million dollars at the box-office and picked up eight Academy Awards.
