    Glory

    Money can't buy you happiness. Neither can fame nor success.

    On Fosse/Verdon Season 1 Episode 4, a very unhappy Bobby hits paydirt with his film Cabaret, leading into a windfall of professional acclaim.

    At the same time, Gwen's career stutters in a lousy play for which she begs for Bobby's help to save the day. He fails her, and the play fails Gwen.

    When Cabaret hit theaters, Bobby was afraid to stick around for the premiere. After his disappointment after Sweet Charity, he didn't trust his ability gain credit from moviegoers or critics.

    Paddy: Bobby, reviews like these, you got a blank check. Anything you want to do from now on, Broadway, Hollywood -- total freedom.
    Bobby: It's incredible.
    Paddy: It's incredible.

    • Permalink: It's incredible.

    Of course, Cabaret was a hit, and that success, combined ...

    Me and My Baby

    The spotlight turned away from Bobby and from the Fosse/Verdon pairing to reveal a bit about Gwen's life.

    On Fosse/Verdon Season 1 Episode 3, Gwen and Bobby are not only divorced but working separately, putting stress on both of them.

    From all directions, Gwen seems to be getting hit over the head with references to her past, and she doesn't like it much.

    It seems the jury is out on the truth behind Gwen's early life.

    Depending on where you find your information, Gwen's pregnancy at age 17 by soon-to-be husband Jim Heughan was either forced on her or she was a willing partner.

    Regardless of the way Jim Jr. made his way into the world, Gwen did leave him when he was a baby to follow her dreams of being a dancer.

    Once she had another child and Gwen's life became more accustomed to parenting full time, it would most certainly have weighed on her that she found fame at the cost of raising her son.

    Who's Got the Pain?

    Gwen and Bobby's first meeting is dissected on Fosse/Verdon Season 1 Episode 2, and every scene plays like the seductive striptease Bobby imagined for Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees.

    The way the musical numbers get tossed in around vignettes from their first collaboration and the beginning of their romance is reminiscent of their greatest works on stage.

    The editing for Fosse/Verdon is just spectacular. 

    The way scenes from different eras intercut to glean even more meaning out of each gives depth to the relationship between Gwen and Bobby and shows how beneficial hindsight can be when you're lucky enough to have it.

    The juxtaposition of the end of Gwen and Bobby's marriage against their burgeoning relationship and how Bobby's marriage to Joan McCracken ultimately ended in much the same way things went south with Gwen is haunting.

    Delineating time periods against the backdrop of who was more successful at a...
