The parts of Roxie and Velma were based on real people whose murder trials took place in 1924. Beulah Annan was the real life Roxie and Belva Gaertner was the real life Velma. Billy Flynn's real life counterpart was famed Chicago Shyster, W.W. O'Brien. See more »
I re-watched this film as a tribute to the recently deceased George Montgomery, and this film still holds up well. I had also seen Chicago on the stage and this is based on the same real-life story of murdress Roxie Hart. It is very satirical and insightful. Frawley steals every seen i in. And, Ginger is just stunning.
