E "Babysitter" ve lo ricordate? Andato in onda nel 1984. Questa foto fa parte però della seconda stagione dove i personaggi sono quelli che più si ricordano, infatti nella seconda parte avviene una modifica quasi completa del cast. La storia ruota su Charles che fa il babysitter. Gli unici attori che rimarranno nella seconda serie sono Scott Baio, il protagonista, e l'attore che interpreta Buddy (il migliore amico di Charles, attore noto per "la famiglia Bradford"). In questa seconda parte troviamo anche l'attrice che poi farà la bagnina in "baywatch".

Well this makes me feel like a teeny bopper little girl again! A Chachi Arcola doll because I will always always always love Happy Days! The Cunninghams (Happy Days) and The Arnolds (The Wonder Years) ...my two fave TV sitcom families.

BUGSY MALONE (Alan Parker, 1976). Alan Parker’s feature film directorial debut is really something special. A musical homage to 1930’s gangster movies with a cast made up entirely of children really shouldn’t work, but it does.
Gang warfare rages in Prohibition-era New York as hoods Fat Sam and Dandy Dan battle for supremacy in the city. Armed with newfangled splurge guns (whipped cream firing machine guns), it looks like Danny Dan’s mob is winning. Speakeasy owner Sam engages good guy Bugsy Malone to help in his fight against Dan, while Bugsy has his sights set on aspiring showgirl Blousey Brown.
Recalling both the classic Warner gangster flicks and early backstage musicals, Bugsy Malone is itself a film which largely avoids categorisation. It is a love letter to the Hollywood of the 1930s. The beautifully detailed sets of dimly lit back alleys and colourful speakeasies faithfully recalling the era of Cagney and Robinson. Paul Williams superb jazz inspired score provides perfect accompaniment to the visuals, while the witty, quick fire dialogue would befit a period screwball comedy. The soft focus camera work and plethora of brown on display gives the feel of an old sepia tone photograph and adds to the era atmosphere.
An assured and charismatic performance from Scott Baio as Bugsy is surprisingly his first screen appearance. As was true of much of the cast. Florrie Dugger is touchingly melancholic as Bugsy’s gal Blousey in her only movie, while John Cassisi embodies gleeful roguishness as Fat Sam, one of only a handful of acting roles for the youngster. Only Jodie Foster, in the supporting role of showgirl cum moll Tallulah, was a veteran performer and gives the first rate professional performance you would expect. But to the credit of the cast and director Parker, none of the kids put a foot wrong and are never upstaged by the more experienced star.
There really is nothing else like Bugsy Malone in cinema history. As artful as it is entertaining and equally enjoyable for children and grownups; a unique, unadulterated pleasure from beginning to end!

ZAPPED! ⚡️Probably couldn’t get away with this one today! Gotta love the ‘80’s!! After the success of the film Porky’s, in 1981, and about the time that the classic comedy Fast Times At Ridgemont High was being released, it seems like everyone was trying to cash in on the success of the twisted teenage schoolboy humor! They even recruited Scott Baio, Willie Aames, and yes- that’s a young Heather Thomas joining in the fun! 🤣 Regency was the label, don’t think I recall any of the music. 🤔#zapped #highschoolmemories #80scomedies #80ssoundtrack #regencyrecords #scottbaio #willieaames #heatherthomas
