This filmed version of Stephen Schwartz's musical tells the story of the oldest son (William Katt) of Charlemagne (Benjamin Rayson) and his quest to find meaning in life. As his journey's guide and narrator, Ben Vereen stars in an otherworldly, absolutely spectacular, Tony winning performance. The music is a lot of fun as is director Bob Fosse's choreography before the play hits something of a wall in its second half.
