Fraudway Films

Hollywood has long had a lucrative and symbiotic relationship with Broadway, with productions transformed from stage to screen – and vice versa – at a dizzying pace. This series celebrates the often bizarre and always dazzling cinematic spectacles that imagine a Great White Way that doesn’t exist outside of the film. With a selection of much-loved classics and seldom-revived flops, we explore the breadth of the Library’s vast film holdings to give audiences something beyond the usual repertory fare.

All That Jazz (R, 123 mins.)
Bob Fosse, Director

Starring Roy Scheider as Joe Gideon, a character loosely based on the life of director Bob Fosse, All That Jazz is a no-holds-barred movie musical that captures the darker side of Broadway.

Gold Diggers of 1933 (97 mins.)
Mervyn LeRoy, Director

Where else can you hear Ginger Rogers sing “We’re in the Money” in Pig Latin? See what it takes to write and produce a fake show in the 1930s.

Staying Alive (PG, 93 mins.)
Sylvester Stallone, Director

This sequel to Saturday Night Fever flopped despite the best efforts of John Travolta and director Sylvester Stallone, but Frank Stallone’s song “Far From Over” was nominated for a Golden Globe for best original song, and there are other moments to treasure in this unusual film.

Stepping Out (PG, 106 mins.)
Lewis Gilbert, Director

Stepping Out could have been a career-revitalizer for its star Liza Minnelli, but the film about a crew of tap-dancing misfits never took off. Now is your chance to see actors like Jane Krakowski and Ellen Greene “step out” in a toe-tapping musical comedy you may have missed in 1991.
