** Depending on the production, the Emcee can seem to be this at times.

** Another scene cuts between the MC and some of the Kit Kat Club Girls doing a jaunty dance, and a bunch of young men sneaking into Natalia's yard in order to throw her dead dog against her door, all while chanting "JUDEN!JUDEN!" It is around this time that [[ThoseWackyNazis the MC and the girls switch their hats around, which now look like soldiers' helmets, and march offstage...]]

* BookEnds: Beginss and ends with the distortion of the Master of Ceremonies, then off the Nazi audience.

** Also, the character of Natalia in the original book is a not especially attractive teenage schoolgirl, rather than a beautiful young woman.



* ButNotTooBi: The main male character, who is StraightGay in the book, reveals himself to be bisexual in the musical, but we never do see him having anything close to a relationship with another man.

The movie was directed by Creator/BobFosse and won eight Academy Awards, including for Fosse's direction, Liza Minelli's performance as Sally and Joel Grey's as the Emcee. It is particularly notable for dominating the awards in the year of ''Film/TheGodfather'', though the latter's comparatively few awards (three) still included Best Picture.

** Subverted in the film's famous dance scene with Sally and the bentwood chair. Minelli and Fosse worked hard to show the typically untrained technique and stereotypical moves that an enthusiastic amateur like Sally would have used. Minelli - a trained dancer - later claimed that rehearsing these jerky, exaggerated moves seeded many of her later arthritis problems.

* {{Fanservice}}: Liza Minelli in a sexy black leotard, gyrating around a chair and singing with AudioErotica - the song "Mein Herr" is full of it.

* LargeHam: Liza Minelli's Sally Bowles, whether it's just from her excessive drinking or her personality. But she's a very OTT person.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: More of a vocal example; in the original Christopher Isherwood stories, Sally has an unremarkable, even squawky voice. That doesn't work so well for the main character of a musical...

* BetaCouple: Fritz and Natalia

to:

* BetaCouple: Fritz and NataliaNatalia.
* BetterAsFriends: Sally goes after Brian but when he confesses that he may be gay, they agree to remain friends. Then subverted when it turns out he's BiTheWay - and Sally becomes the first girl he enjoys sleeping with.



* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When Natalia tells Sally about Fritz making a pass at her, she describes him as having no respect for her father's couch.



* {{Fanservice}}: Liza Minelli in a sexy black leotard, gyrating around a chair and singing with AudioErotica - the song "Mein Herr" is full of it.
* GagEcho: Sally draws a comparison between Fritz romancing Natalia and an animal stalking its prey. She suggests he needs to 'pounce' to get Natalia to notice him. Much later, Natalia tells Sally about Fritz making a pass at her on the couch. Sally awkwardly says "he pounced".



%% * LargeHam: Liza Minelli's Sally Bowles.
%% * MoneySong: "Money Money"
* MoodWhiplash: Within the one song. "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" starts with a simple boy with a great voice singing. But when the camera pans back to reveal his Hitler Youth uniform and everyone in the audience joins in together, it gets extremely creepy.

to:

%% * LargeHam: Liza Minelli's Sally Bowles.
%%
Bowles, whether it's just from her excessive drinking or her personality. But she's a very OTT person.
* MadonnaWhoreComplex: PlayedForDrama. Sally would be the Whore, while Natalia is the Madonna. Natalia has to go to Sally for advice on sexual matters, while Sally herself angsts about whether a 'Whore' like her could ever become a good wife and mother.
* MoneySong: "Money Money"
Money", sung by Sally and the MC about how money "makes the world go round". Sung while Sally is enjoying being romanced by a rich bachelor.
* MoodWhiplash: MoodWhiplash:
**
Within the one song. "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" starts with a simple boy with a great voice singing. But when the camera pans back to reveal his Hitler Youth uniform and everyone in the audience joins in together, it gets extremely creepy.


Added DiffLines:

* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: Played with. Fritz - under the advice of Sally - 'pounces' on Natalia one afternoon. Natalia describes herself as initially being shocked but quickly realising she enjoys it. Although it straddles the line, there's no reason to think Natalia couldn't have rejected him if she wanted to - or that Fritz wouldn't have stopped if Natalia made it clear she wasn't interested.


Added DiffLines:

* ReallyGetsAround: When Sally gives Natalia the German word for 'fornication', Brian has this to say.
--> "Trust ''that'' to be the one German word you pronounce perfectly."
* ShirtlessScene: Brian is shirtless in a trip to the lake house, in the first instance that implies Maximilian has an attraction to him.
