Here's the basic "shtick" of Bugsy Malone: it's a gangster picture enacted by children. 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 kiddie crooks substitute whipped cream for bullets. Paul Williams contributes several songs, which are performed by adult singers and lip-synched by the pint-sized actors. The cast includes John Cassisi as diminutive Capone clone Fat Sam, and then-13-year-old Jodie Foster as the sultry nightclub thrush Tallulah.~Hal Erickson

“Small cast, big entertainment.”
Posted . Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
innocent fun film (like movies used to be) obscure blend of prohibition era gangster film and musical set to the presence of some very talented preteens, lots of catchy songs provided by
Andy Williams and great performances by the little folks including a young Scott biao and Jody foster make this wonderful heart felt time capsule. The Great picture and soundtrack quality doesn’t hurt either.
