Series: Cinema Classics
On Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23, Cinema Classics presents a rare 35mm print of ROXIE HART, William Wellman's 1942 version of CHICAGO.
ROXIE HART (1942): Showgirl Roxie Hart's no-good husband kills a man and insists that Roxie (Ginger Rogers) take the blame, since juries seldom send a woman to the chair. She agrees, figuring that the publicity will be beneficial to her career. Roxie's case is taken by grandstanding attorney Billy Flynn (Adolphe Menjou). Directed by William Wellman.
