Personal Quote:

[on the chances of an Oscar for All That Jazz (1979)] I'm such a long shot. I think anyone who bets on me should get a toaster, like they give out in banks, for having made the investment. See more »

Trivia:

In most of his choreographed pieces, he (or those dancing his choreography) usually wore a hat and gloves. Fosse always wore hats because he started going bald at the age of 17; he used gloves a lot because he didn't like his hands. See more »

Trademark:

In most of his choreographed sequences, you will see him or his proteges wearing a hat/gloves. See more »
