"Inside the Kit Kat Klub of 1931 Berlin, starry-eyed singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) and an impish emcee (Joel Grey) sound the call to decadent fun, while outside a certain political party grows into a brutal force. Boasting a score by the legendary songwriting partnership of John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret won eight Oscars including awards for Minneli, Grey and director Bob Fosse, who shaped a triumph of style and substance. Come to this cabaret, old chum. You'll never want to leave."--Container

A nostalgic but thoroughly unsentimental piece about growing up in a small Texas town during the Great Depression. Focusing on a young widow who suddenly has to support her two young children, the film celebrates the community she gathers around her: a black hobo who begins as a thief and winds up as a friend and mentor; a cranky blind boarder; a pragmatic sister who is supporting her own family, including a husband with a penchant for her best friend
