June 26, 1976 in UK cinemas: Bugsy Malone

“EVERY YEAR BRINGS A GREAT MOVIE. EVERY DECADE A GREAT MOVIE MUSICAL!”

Bugsy_Malone-1976Bugsy Malone is a British musical gangster comedy film, directed by Alan Parker and featuring only child actors. Set in New York City, the film is loosely based on events in New York and Chicago from the early 1920s to 1931 during Prohibition, specifically the exploits of real-life gangsters like Al Capone and Bugs Moran, as dramatized in cinema. Parker lightened the subject matter considerably for the children’s market; in the U.S. the film received a G rating.

The film was Parker’s feature-length directorial debut, introduced actor Scott Baio, and featured a 13-year old Jodie Foster.
