Hollywood notable figures, Jamie Foxx and Beyonce Knowles, both on hand to help show off scenes from the stage adaptation "Dreamgirls" in Cannes Film Festival on Friday May 19th, 2006.
The film director Bill Condon, who also was there attending the event, introduced about 20 minutes of footage to reporters and movie professionals, including rollicking musical numbers from the saga of a 1960s girl group that rises to superstardom.
He said "We in making this movie, all of us inspired to be part of the tradition of classic Hollywood musicals, Stanley Donen movies, George Cukor movies and Vincente Minnelli movies, and those movies were first taken seriously in this country and at this festival. So suddenly it did feel right."
