As one of the most acclaimed films of its time, Sydney Pollack`s `dance marathon` masterpiece picked up an amazing 9 Academy Award nominations in 1969. With dazzling performances from the entire cast, it is easy to see why this film is universally regarded as a true movie classic.

In the dark days of the depression, `dance marathons` became a way for desperate people to compete for prize money. Events would last for days, as contestants pushed themselves beyond the point of exhaustion while the barbarous crowds watched on, wagering money for sport and profit. Against this backdrop, the lives of a disparate group of contestants become intertwined. Brought together by chance, they move relentlessly around the dance floor in search of a dream. As the audience watches... the clock ticks on... which of them will survive?
