    No Michael York?

  • boring

    Liza Minnelli apparently got reconstructive surgery after receiving a Glasgow smile.

    Movie is 100% badass awesome.

  • Malibu Eric

    @Vidontag: That IS Michael York. I couldn’t believe it myself. Had to do some google work to confirm.

  • gwydion

    They all look TERRIBLE.

  • Seth

    Holy Gourd, that there be a woman who can’t smile even with painted on eyebrows and mouth corners! And why’s she clutching that fur so tightly? Oxygen tube?

  • Vidontag

    God, it is Michael York. I guess he’s not well. Marisa Berenson is the only one who looks good, albeit artificially so.

  • boring

    They’re all in their 60s/70s/even 80s, they look just fine for people with limitless amounts of money and deeply troubling emotional issues and/or body dysmorphia.

  • niles

    What have they done to Liza’s mouth? It looks like the Joker but extremely lopsided.

  • niles

    Never mind, I was informed that she had a stroke.

  • Vidontag

    And Joel Grey looks fine for 80. Okay, enough superficiality from me.

  • harlemhomme


    Oh,I am so sorry to learn of (assuming info is correct) about Liza’s stroke. I , too, noticed that her mouth was particularly lopsided while speaking and in photos. My girl’s quite the trouper!

    @gwydion: honey, that’s what happens when we get older:-)

  • Dominickj

    Sheeesh what a bunch of intolerant bitchy queens writing some of these comments. You need to grow up. These people are legends…

    Cabaret was one of my all-time favorite films, and continues to be so. I recall listening to the soundtrack (on old LP) one Sunday afternoon many years ago. The next day my wife and I were astonished to hear our three year old daughter, playing by herself in our living room, singing, “Money, money, money, money!” For me, being a bi, Michael York was always a heart-throb (and somewhere else too) but the entire film and all the stars stand out as a remarkable (and historically sensitive) achievement. As to the appearance of the stars today, well, we all age, and for me the stars of Cabaret are remembered with admiration and fondness.
