Trivia: Chicago

The band:

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Al Jardine, Carl Wilson and Dennis Wilson were recruited by Peter Cetera to provide the Beach Boys-style vocal harmonies for "Wishing You Were Here" on Chicago VII.
  • Throw It In: On a lot of the early albums. Many fans got upset when the false start for "Happy Man" got removed from the Rhino remaster of Chicago VII. Also, listen near the end of "Aire" for a more... humorous example.

The musical film:

  • Award Category Fraud: Catherine Zeta-Jones was nominated at the Oscar and BAFTA awards for Best Supporting Actress, even though the role of Velma Kelly in Chicago previously earned Babe Neuworth a Leading Tony.
  • Fake Nationality: Katalin Helinski (the Hunyak) is a Hungarian character with a Polish surname played by a Russian actress.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Britney Spears was supposed to play the heiress in this movie.
    • Hugh Jackman was offered to play Billy Flynn but he turned it down as he thought that he's too young for that part. Later, he regrets making that decision.
