Books that inspired the film[edit]

How could "The Berlin of Sally Bowles" have inspired the film if it was written after the film was made? Eyal Bairey 19:09, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

According to the Christopher Isherwood page, the three books listed are different editions of the same work, with different titles. That is, Sally Bowles (1937) was included in the later novel Goodbye to Berlin (1939), which was included in The Berlin Stories (1945), which was later re-issued as The Berlin of Sally Bowles (1975). It would probably be sufficient to list Goodbye to Berlin as the inspiration for the play and the film, since it's the only one that has a wikipedia page.

No mention of any awards... <eg> -- 08:25, 19 December 2006 (UTC)


It does not fit wikipedia standards to call this film superior to the original broadway production. A film and a broadway show can NEVER be compared that way.--Kiwiboy1221 04:01, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

And most of us who saw both the original Broadway production and the movie found the Broadway production far superior. GCW50 20:08, 9 July 2007 (UTC)


The trivia section has been entirely copied from IMDB. Does anyone else want to remove the copied trivia?


Seems like a copyright issue to me, so yes. Dstumme 03:35, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

removing "Jewish gay men"[edit]

Wiki article on Kander and Ebb makes no mention of their personal lives or marital status, therefore I'm removing the false assertion from this Cabaret article. There is no legitimate published source on the personal life of either. If a friend of yours who works in the Broadway theater told you gossip about their private lives, then that's original research. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:00, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree. I remember reading a new york times article a few years ago that actually discussed this. If I remember correctly, John Kander was gay but Fred Ebb was straight. I'll try to find it. Patrick Colvin (talk) 05:15, 23 August 2010 (UTC)


The last paragraph of the "Plot" section is also repeated as the section "Narrative and news reading". You may want to reconsider that. (talk) 16:36, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
