Shirley Maclaine stars as dance hall hostess Charity Hope Valentine, a woman whose faith in the virtues of old-fashioned romance is knocked by a string of disastrous romances. Robbed of her earnings by her absconding boyfriend, she suffers further heartbreaks at the hands of an Italian movie star and a nervy insurance clerk.

- Nominated for 3 Oscars

Fosse's stage production was/is wonderful, but his movie is simply spectacular. He brings to the screen everything he had to leave out for the stage. As "Charity" is based on Fellini's Nights of Cabiria, the result is truly groundbreaking. The sets, scenery, NY locations, costumes, hair, all contribute to demonstrate the bizarre culture of the late '60s. The movie succeeds on many more levels than the stage version. This is not a filmed stage performance, it is every bit a true movie. Shirley MacLaine gives the performance of her career. Her other landmark roles pale in comparison to Charity. Unfortunately, Universal Studios panicked when the film met with some initial negative reaction and the movie was cut, re-edited and even given a different ending. Fosse's gift to the world was his intensely personal artistic integrity. It was impossible for him to be dispassionate in his creations and he must have taken "Charity's" reputation as a failure very personally. Thankfully his original version has been wonderfully preserved for DVD. Now "Sweet Charity" can take it's rightful place in the movie musical hall of fame.
