Paul Williams is enjoying a bit of a comeback right now – the star of an award-winning documentary, a song on the Academy Award nomination shortlist and an upcoming musical collaboration with Guillermo del Toro. Celebrate the musician’s legendary career with a three-week career retrospective.

BUGSY MALONE is a 1976 musical directed by Alan Parker (MIDNIGHT EXPRESS, PINK FLOYD THE WALL) that tackles the gangster genre with a decidedly kid-appropriate bent. The film, about rival gangs fighting over "Splurge Guns" (weapons that fire cream pies), features only child actors in its cast. Everybody from the floozy dance hall singers to the mustache twirling bad guys are played by kids. To make matters even more deliciously weird, though, whenever the kids break out out into song — and they do often — the songs are sung by adults. Paul Williams (THE MUPPET MOVIE, PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE) is responsible for the film's hugely catchy songs.

BUGSY MALONE featured the film debut of future "Charles in Charge" star Scott Baio and featured Jodie Foster, at 13 already a veteran actor.
