With an Oscar-nominated score and a spectacular dance sequence by Academy Award-winner Bob Fosse (ALL THAT JAZZ, CABARET). Featuring Ann Miller (ON THE TOWN), Keenan Wynn (MARY POPPINS, DR. STRANGELOVE), Oscar-nominee James Whitmore (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, BATTLEGROUND), and Kurt Kasznar (TV's "Land of the Giants," "Lili"). Directed by the acclaimed George Sidney (BYE BYE BIRDIE, SHOW BOAT, THE THREE MUSKETEERS).
