Three cheers for Donald Larsson's very complete listing.
 
But in all the lists, I didn't seem to notice _All That
Jazz_.
 
For those who don't remember, the Broadway
director-choreographer has a heart attack while preparing
his newest show.  If he dies and the show folds before
opening, the insurance kicks in, and the show will make a
profit without ever having opened!  Now if that's not
central to the narrative, I don't know what is.
 
Certainly on-screen open-heart surgery must get some kind of
pride of place in discussion of heart attacks as plot
points.
 
Sincerely,
