Bugsy Malone

Bugsy malone movie poster

Bugsy Malone is a much loved 1976 musical. It is based loosely on events in Chicago, Illinois during the Prohibition era, more specifically, the exploits of gangsters like Al Capone as dramatised in films. It's tongue-in-cheek style stars children as the gangsters and their molls, toning down the subject matter sufficiently to receive a G rating.

The plot concerns the manufacture of a brand of custard, which is used first in cream-topped pies (being hit with one in the face kills the character) then later in splurge guns that enable the dessert to be deployed on an unprecedented level. The musical centres on Fat Sam's Grand Slam speakeasy.
