The sequence below is from the 1969 film version of the musical starring Shirley MacLaine and had choreography by Bob Fosse. The number below is entitled THE RICH MAN'S FRUG and is performed when Charity is escorted to a very classy nightclub by an Italian movie star. The dance is lengthy, but it seemed to make this viewer want even more. Performed live, this number is a marvel to witness ... the body movements of the lead female dancer, the robotic odd stork-like strides of the two main male dancers with their cigarettes perfectly poised and the rest of the company in perfectly timed physical syncopation are all pure Bob Fosse moves. The cigarette puffs that emanate from the men's mouths even seemed expertly choreographed.
Listen ... and watch:
