You gotta razzle and dazzle them.

5. During the Cell Block Tango, each girl does an imitation of her crime, each in session using a red silk bandanna to imitate where the blood would have been.

However, when Hunyak is speaking, she pulls out a white bandanna, not a red one, indicating that, she is, in fact, innocent.

11. During the song "Cell Block Tango" Hunyak speaks in Hungarian, but the actress is Russian and her accent makes the speech very difficult to understand even for native speakers of Hungarian.

Translation: "What am doing here? They say my famous lover held down my husband while I chopped off his head. But it isn't true, I am innocent. I don't know why Uncle Sam says I did it. I tried to explain it at the police station but they did not understand me."

13. Charlize Theron had initially secured the role of Roxie Hart while Nicholas Hytner was attached as director.

When Hytner withdrew and Rob Marshall took over, Theron had to audition again and lost the lead to Renée Zellweger.

15. A long battle took place between the agents of Renée Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones over billing on the movie poster.

In the end, "diagonal billing" was settled upon - as depending on which way you read it (top to bottom or left to right), both appear to get top billing.
