How will 'Les Miserables' compare to these classics?
6. 'All That Jazz'
After revolutionizing Broadway choreography and making a successful transition to films with the likes of "Cabaret" and "Lenny," Bob Fosse got personal with this cathartic, semi-autobiographical film in which a post-"Jaws" Roy Scheider plays a decadent dance genius. Filled with colorful musical numbers and dance routines, it encapsulates Fosse's one-of-a-kind career, and has since gone on to influence pop stars from Paula Abdul to Beyonce.
