Trivia

Diane Keaton sang White Boys/Black Boys In the original stage version. By the time the movie came out ten years later, Keaton was an A-List movie star, probably too big to do a walk-on extra type role she did in the theater production in 1967. The role went to Ellen Foley. See more »

This film is a gem. The music and staging are spot on perfect. Milos Foreman clearly loves this material. If you've never seen it before make sure to watch the widescreen version. Treat Williams, who has sunk below the radar these days, takes ownership of the character Berger and pulls us along for the ride.
