Storyline

It's two weeks until the scheduled release date of the yet uncompleted Lenny (1974), the status due to Bob being unhappy with the editing. Bob's focus on the movie has taken away any work on his part on Chicago. But not having taken a break from work since his doctors at Payne Whitney advised - their advice of at least a one year respite - leads to Bob suffering a heart attack. Gwen's response to Bob's health issue shows her dedication to the professional and personal entity of Fosse/Verdon. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Just after he arrives in the rehearsal room and sits down Bob Fosse breaks off a piece of a Hershey Bar and holds it up to offer a piece to Gwen Verdon. The Hershey bar itself has an outer wrapper covering a foil type inner wrapper. In the 1970's Hershey Bars were wrapped in a white glossy paper. The foil came along much later. See more »

All I Care About Is Love
24 August 2020 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

There are some interesting ideas in this episode. Again the episode cannot sustain the scenes.

It does well in catching the turmoil in Fosse's life in 1974. He is editing the movie Lenny and the opening date is getting nearer and nearer.

Meanwhile rehearsals are due to take place for a new stage musical, Chicago. Verdon had a high degree of creative control for the musical.

An already stretched Fosse, smoking, drinking and on drugs suffers a heart attack.

The episode is told in a stand up style from the film Lenny. Instead we get a chapter on Fosse's life and how he started out as a child performer in burlesque clubs. His sexual awakening from older strippers.

I think the problem is the series is too long at eight episodes. I am sure I have seen some of the scenes earlier such as the incident in the strip clubs. If Fosse was alive today and saw the series. He would complain that it needed to be tighter.
