Description

Original 1987 release

The year's 1929. The place is New York. It's another rainy night and Roxy Robson is moving fast along the wet side-walks. Suddenly, his four pursuers have him trapped in a blind alley. Roxy's scared, so he should be - the hoods are armed! within seconds it's all over. New York is a tough place to live.

Welcome to the world of gangwarfare, speakeasys and the splurge gun in Alan Parker's first hit movie, the brilliant all singing, all dancing and all action 'Bugsy Malone'.

This musical gangster spoof must rate as one of the most unique movies ever made, with an all child cast who shoot cream at each other with splurge guns and dance their way through this hilarious tale.

There's Never Ever Been A Movie Like It!
