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.

Opinions vary, but this has always been one of my favorites. It was once accused of going too far with the editing techniques and other tricks. Today, some 30-plus years later, the film looks more tame and thought-out, especially compared to films like MOULIN ROUGE or CHICAGO. If nothing else, this film is THE historic testament to the Fosse style of the 1960's, as THE PAJAMA GAME captures his style of the 1950's. Few dance sequences can top THERE'S GOTTA BE SOMETHING BETTER THAN THIS or STEAM HEAT. I recommend both.
