All That Jazz, Godzilla, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre among new home entertainment titles

Scripted by Fosse and Robert Alan Aurthur, this largely autobiographical piece finds Roy Scheider delivering an excellent performance as Joe Gideon, a Broadway icon who's running himself ragged between mounting an expensive stage show, editing his latest movie , and living up to his billing as a tireless womanizer. The film is such the navel-gazing insider piece that it's no wonder the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences went gaga over it while every other major awards group ignored it .

DVD Review: Decent extras accompany 'All That Jazz'

There's no surer sign of Federico Fellini's influence on American directors than Bob Fosse's 1979 "All That Jazz." Others - Woody Allen and the late Paul Mazursky, for a start - also made Fellini-esque autobiographical features, but no one more completely borrowed the structure and concerns of Fellini's "8 1/2" .
