All That Jazz (1979)

Roy Scheider as "Joe Gideon"

When he is not planning for his upcoming stage musical or working on his Hollywood film, choreographer/director Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) is popping pills and sleeping with a seemingly endless line of women. The physical and mental stress begins to take a toll on the ragged perfectionist. Soon, he must decide whether or not his non-stop work schedule and hedonistic lifestyle are worth risking his life. The film is a semi-autobiographical tale written and directed by the legendary Bob Fosse.

British Academy of Film & Television Arts (1980) Nominated Actor
Academy Award (1979) Nominated Best Actor
Golden Globe (1979) Nominated Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
