Starring Robert de Niro and Liza Minnelli, its main musical title performed by Minelli was later recorded by Frank Sinatra and became one of the most popular musical numbers of the century.
New York, New York starring Liza Minnelli and Robert de Niro is a great example of the scope and talent of director Martin Scorsese, as it was the complete opposite to the previous picture in his filmography, his dramatic and controversial triumph Taxi Driver. According to Scorsese, this film was a way for him to distance himself from bleak reality of the time, an homage to classic Hollywood cinema, dedicated to his favorite city with its bright lights, yellow taxis, society parties, luxury cars and inimitable atmosphere.
The film's main music title was later recorded by Frank Sinatra and became one of the most popular themes of the century.
New York, New York
