    Here's the basic "shtick" of Bugsy Malone: it's a gangster picture enacted by children. Acted out before scaled-down sets, the film details the career of Bugsy Malone (Scott Baio), who rises to the top of the criminal ladder in 1920s New York. Whenever gunfire is called for, the kiddie crooks substitute whipped cream for bullets. Paul Williams contributes several songs, which are performed by adult singers and lip-synched by the pint-sized actors. The cast includes John Cassisi as diminutive Capone clone Fat Sam, and then-13-year-old Jodie Foster as the sultry nightclub thrush Tallulah. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide



    Does anybody know who sings this song?

    To some surprise I don´t like it. I´m no rigid puritan and this is by no way a ´musical for pervs´ as somewhere else stated. But the idea of making a kids-playing-mobsters film and exposing children as objects the way it´s done with these nightclub dancers is a self-contradiction. Sorry, I can´t watch Tallulah and her sisters without thinking about what intentions the directors might have had. I know it´s very popular to present day in the US, school plays and so on. So maybe I was wrong.
