Bugsy Malone is a 1976 musical gangster comedy film, written and directed by Alan Parker. The film was Parker’s feature film directorial debut. A co-production of United States and United Kingdom, it features only child actors with Jodie Foster, Scott Baio, John Cassisi and Martin Lev in pivotal roles. The film tells the story of the rise of “Bugsy Malone” and the battle for power between “Fat Sam” and “Dandy Dan”.
Set in New York City, it is a gangster movie spoof, substituting “Splurge” guns and whipped cream for machine guns and bullets. The film is loosely based on events in New York and Chicago during Prohibition era, specifically the exploits of real-life gangsters such as Al Capone and Bugs Moran. Parker lightened the subject matter considerably for the children’s market and the film received a G rating in the U.S.
It is frequently cited by critics, film directors, and audiences alike as one of the greatest films of all time. — wikipedia
