Number 9 - Bugsy Malone

An old gangster musical with a twist, instead of actors you get kids. Instead of guns, bullets and death you get cake. This 1976 movie also has a very young Jodie Foster as Tallulah. A fantastic list of characters including Fat Sam, Dandy Dan, Cagey Joe and Sanke Eyes. Catchy tunes as well including "Fat Sam's Grand Slam", "My name is Tallulah" and "So You Want to be a Boxer". There is great humour in it and I love that the bakery which supplied the cakes gets a special thank you in the credits. This makes the top 10 as it brings back memories of numerous Christmases watching the the family. Peachy.
