In the "Aloof" movement of "The Rich Man's Frug," two of the male principal dancers walk down the stairs to light a woman's cigarette, while the others dance behind them. The background choreography in this shot leads directly to the triangle formation of the next shot, and the two men are now in the middle of the group, although there was no time for them to reach that position.

The general story may not be a colossal hit but its theme is definitely universal -- it's a quest for love. But what struck a chord in my soul while viewing "Sweet Charity" was the then-and-even-now-modern dance choreography. I greatly appreciated the subtle and not-so-subtle sense of humor that was expressed through the theatrical scenes -- either the purely musical or verbal scenes -- and, of course, Shirley MacLaine's character. It kind of reminded me of "My Fair Lady" (Barbra Streisand) when you think about the humor factor. (Only in "SC," in my opinion, *most* of the humor is discovered through the theatrics [not the "spoken" part of the film script] of the film.)
