Rising Stars, Falling Stars: We Must Have Music!

On April 26 Vaginal Davis is presenting Alan Parker's BUGSY MALONE (USA 1976) which is set in Chicago during the Prohibition era. Bugsy Malone works occasionally for Fat Sam, who only has his bar, a couple of gangsters and the singer Tallulah (Jodie Foster) left since Dandy Dan's gang took away all his business. Bugsy falls in love with Blousey Brown who tries in vain to to perform and recruits men from a soup kitchen to capture Dan's arms cache. The machine guns are real, but they are loaded with cream. A gangster musical with an all-children cast.
