Bugsy Malone, the 1976 musical film, is very loosely based on events in Chicago, Illinois in the Prohibition era, specifically, the exploits of gangsters like Al Capone as dramatized in cinema.
The movie stars children as the gangsters and their molls, most notably a young Jodie Foster as Tallulah, and Scott Baio in the title role.
The plot concerns the manufacture of a brand of custard, which is used first in cream-topped pies then later in 'splurge guns'.
This songbook contains a background to the making of the film, over 40 photographs and a brief synopsis to the story.
