Bugsy Malone

Bugsy Malone is a musical movie, very loosely based on events in Chicago, Illinois in the Prohibition era, specifically, the exploits of gangsters like Al Capone. The tongue-in-cheek movie stars children as the gangsters and their molls. The plot concerns the manufacture of a brand of killer custard, which is used first in pies then later in splurge guns to kill people. The musical centres on Fat Sam's Grand Slam speakeasy.

It was written and directed by Alan Parker.
