4.4 Reading and writing
1 Match the headings to the paragraphs.
Work and war Money makes the world go around!
From stage to screen Problems around the world

a __________________________________________
Problems around the world.
Cabaret is a famous film which is set in Berlin during the Great
Depression in the 1930s, a period when there was poverty and
financial difficulties all around the world. It was during this time that
Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany, because he promised the
people he could solve their problems.
b __________________________________________
In the end, instead of helping the German people, his actions
contributed to the beginning of the Second World War. One of the
reasons for this was that he employed lots of people in the factories
to build weapons. That meant that people in Germany had work, but
other countries in Europe became afraid of what Hitler was going to
do. They were right to be afraid. During the 1930s Hitler broke lots
of promises and began to invade countries around Germany.
c __________________________________________
The story of Cabaret was written by a man who had lived in Berlin during the 1920s. It takes place
at the beginning of the 1930s, when Hitlers Nazi party was becoming very strong. Before being
made into a film, Cabaret was a novel and then a musical for the stage. It was written during the
1960s and was a great success.
d __________________________________________
It was even more successful when it was turned into a film
in the 1970s starring the famous actress and singer Liza
Minelli. One of the most famous songs from the film it
is not in the original musical is called Money, Money. This
song tells us that money is the most important thing in the
world for many people.
Certainly, when people have not got money, it can cause
many problems.

e Cabaret was a success first in the 1970s. _____
