Welcome to Fat Sam’s speakeasy! A TAXI DRIVER–era Jodie Foster is among the gaggle of young ’uns who comprise the all-child cast of this delightful 1976 musical gangster comedy, in which the guns shoot whipped cream and the titular ex-boxer (played by Scott Baio in his first role) finds himself caught up in a mob turf war at the height of the roaring twenties. Featuring toe-tapping tunes (courtesy of Paul Williams), a snappy script, and remarkably poised performances from its young cast, this debut feature from Alan Parker (FAME) has earned its place as a beloved cult classic.
