Bugsy Malone

Bugsy Malone

Alan Parker’s classic musical set in 1929 New York tells the story of one of the most notorious American gangsters—with a cast made up entirely of child actors! The story centres around a war raging between two rival gangsters, Fat Sam and Dandy Dan, the proud owner of a dreaded cream-shooting ‘splurge gun’. As the custard pies fly, Bugsy Malone, an all-round nice guy, falls for Blousey Brown, a singer at Fat Sam’s speakeasy. But, his seduction is disrupted by the sassy songstress Tallulah (played by 13-year-old Jodie Foster), who wants Bugsy for herself. How is Bugsy to get the girl and help Fat Sam defend his business against the deadly Dan and his dastardly tricks? With an infectious soundtrack by Paul Williams, Bugsy Malone remains a delightful and entertaining romp for parents and children alike.
