About the Film:

Made in 1976 and set in 1929 New York City, Bugsy Malone is a gangster picture enacted by children, very loosely based on events in New York City from the early 1920s to 1931 in the Prohibition era. Acted out before scaled-down sets, the film details the career of Bugsy Malone (Scott Baio), who rises to the top of the criminal ladder in 1920s New York. Whenever gunfire is called for, the kid crooks substitute whipped cream for bullets. Paul Williams contributes several songs, which are performed by adult singers and lip-synched by the actors.

The cast includes John Cassisi as diminutive Capone clone Fat Sam, and the then-13-year-old Jodie Foster as the sultry nightclub thrush Tallulah.
