Cabaret, All That Jazz, Pippin, Sweet Charity, Lenny, Star 80, Dancin’, Liza with a Z (for television). Film director, choreographer actor, dancer, writer. Driven. workaholic, enigmatic. He’s uniquely talented. Bob Fosse.

“Dancing is such style that I thought it would be one thing I could bring to movies. Even Lenny, which is not dance is kind of choreographed.”

“Somebody once said the toughest thing in writing a screenplay is the fifth word Act #1 Scene #1, is easy. The next word is a killer.”

“I never had big inspirations. It’s always putting one foot in front of the other. You hear about people getting these brilliant ideas. I just say, I have to go to work.”

“They jumped on Sweet Charity when I tried a lot of quick cuts, which now by MTV standards would be very tame.”

“I really get scared-I’m not talking humble or anything- I get sick every morning when I’m doing a picture. If I don’t get sick, I think uh-oh, I’m getting overconfident.”

“My dreams are the worst, They’re all B-movies.”

Filmmakers like Bob Fosse challenge the manufacturer to develop componentry able to capture their art in all its subtlety and nuance. Mitsubishi answers that challenge with products like the Designer Series 35″ television set shown here.
