During the opening number "Willkommen", the Master of Ceremonies says, "Outside it is windy, but inside it is so hot." In the stage musical, he says that outside it is winter. "Winter" was changed to "windy" in the film so that exteriors could be shot in warm, sunny weather. That way, audiences wouldn't question the unusually mild German winter weather. See more »
During the song "Cabaret", Sally's "cross your heart" halter dress changes from crossing left-over-right to right-over-left and back between shots. See more »
I have a very hard time picking a favorite, favorite film, but if forced to create a Top 10 List, this film would be there. Yes, Liza Minnelli CAN act , and brilliantly. The songs are wonderful and funny, the narrative is brilliant and dark. Those who typically don't like musicals might enjoy this, as there are none of those cheesy "I feel a song coming on" moments -
all of the music is confined to the stage of the Kit Kat Klub. Michael
York's role is often overshadowed by Minnelli's brassy Sally Bowles, but his work is equally strong. A+.
