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.
