CLEVELAND CINEMATHEQUE presents CHICAGO
Sexy, jazz-loving and dressed to kill, Roxie Hart (Phyllis Haver) has a doting husband in Victor Varconi, not to mention a gold-digging affair on the side with Eugene Pallette, who pays and pays, eventually with his life. Put on trial for murder, Roxie secures lawyer Billy Flynn (Robert Edeson), equal part mob “mouthpiece” and publicity agent. When Roxie hits the headlines, the courtroom theatrics begin.
