His Work Inspired CABARET
Writer Christopher Isherwood was born in England on August 26, 1904. His collection of tales called The Berlin Stories inspired the play I Am A Camera, made into a film of the same name. That play was turned into a hit Broadway musical called Cabaret, also made into a film of the same name. A top Oscar-winning, innovative, big hit 1970s film.
Love. Freedom. Identity. Art. Those themes add true colors to this feature. If you get the DVD, make sure to watch the extras. Watch the deleted scenes. They're also quite substantial and revealing. You may be disappointed in one late movie star, an actor who had a nice number of 1940s classics to his credit. Chris & Don: A Love Story can be seen on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
