    What if Chicago the movie was made in the 1960s?

    Who would you cast in the movie? Who would direct and write it? Technical crew?

    Well we’d know who’d direct it duh…

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Assuming it was released in the early 60s I would have liked to see Hithcock directing Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Cary Grant.

    I could see Frank Sinatra as Billy Flynn.

    Of course Bob Fosse would be directing and Gwen Verdon would be Roxie Hart.

    That’s in question considering she wasn’t Charity in his film of Sweet Charity, even though she won the Tony for the role.

    Who would you see being cast as Roxie, then? I’d say I could see Shirley MacLaine being cast in the 1960s if not Verdon.

    Verdon was nominated for the Tony for Sweet Charity; she lost the award to Angela Lansbury for Mame.

    To be honest whilst I love Shirley MacClaine and I love her in Sweet Charity she’s a bit meh in the film. I loved the film but it felt like something was missing and I think it was Gwen.

    I bet had Gwen been it she probably could have given Maggie Smith a run for her money at the Oscars in 1970!

    Pearl Bailey would be a better fit for Mama Morton imo.

    Wouldn’t 70s be a better question considering that was when the stage-show came out?

    I get that, I just thought of the 60’s because that decade seemed kinder to movie musicals. At least until Doctor Dolittle. And this is just purely hypothetical.
