Synopsis

Album Description

The cast includes Scott Baio as Bugsy and Jodie Foster as his love interest Tallulah. Although the actors 'sang' the songs on screen, they were actually lip-synching to voices pre-recorded by adult singers, whose voices were sped up. Words and music by acclaimed songwriter Paul Williams. Scott Baio rules! Polydor.

CD Reviews

The Mob and Mr. Williams
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 12/11/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The CD has yet to be released domestically, but the Paul Williams score for this comedic musical of children portraying 1920s-era gangsters (starring Scott Baio and Jodie Foster) is worth tracking down.

The 10 numbers have the Williams wit throughout - see the politician/sitting by the kitchen/said he caught his fingers/in the well he was wishing in - and are performed by a number of adult singers; including Williams, Archie Hahn and Liberty Williams, with the actors lip-synching in the film.

Williams is a prolific songwriter who has produced a number of excellent scores for movies. This album is near the top of that list."

"Either you know of this rarity(& love it), or you have no idea what it is(& you're curious); either way, it's worth the low price, and isn't readily avaiable in the U.S., anyway.
It's Baio's first job, and the continuing of Foster's turn into a mature performer(regardless of the whole 'kid characters' concept).
And the music is almost too catchy sometimes(in a good way)! If you enjoy the movie, you might wanna grab the soundtrack! Do so..."
