Alan Parker’s kids gangster musical satire is among the best loved movies of the 1970s and features a great cast, catchy song and dance routines and hilarious slapstick comedy.
New York, 1929: a war rages between two rival gangsters, Fat Sam and Dandy Dan. Dan is in possession of a new and deadly weapon, the dreaded ‘splurge gun’. As the custard pies fly, Bugsy Malone (Happy Days’ Scott Baio), an all-round nice guy, falls for Blousey Brown, a singer at Fat Sam’s speakeasy. His designs on her are disrupted by the seductive songstress Tallulah (double Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster) who wants Bugsy for herself.
