A then-13-year-old Jodie Foster steals the show in this charming kid’s musical that features an all-child cast and was nominated for an Academy Award®. This parody of 1930s gangster flicks pits two crime bosses against each other for control of the town. Scott Baio is the likeable hero who falls in with the crowd and Foster plays a nightclub headliner who can zing a one-liner with the best of them. This kid-friendly flick features whipped cream instead of bullets, as well as a fun musical score by Paul Williams (THE MUPPET MOVIE).
