We’ll be saluting the prohibition era with Button Brewhouse’s Pre-Prohibition Lager on tap, amongst their other selections. We’ll also be slinging hot dogs from You Sly Dog Food Truck. Our films this evening are 1932’s Scarface: Shame Of The Nation as well as 1976’s wacky musical Bugsy Malone, which stars teen heartthrobs Jodi Foster and Scott Baio, this unusual spoof of old gangster movies in which a cast made up entirely of children sings and dances its way around Prohibition-era sets, substituting toy guns and whipped cream for machine guns and bullets!
Scarface: The Shame of the Nation (1932) is one of the boldest, most potent, raw and violently-brutal gangster-crime films ever made. Released by United Artists, this sensational production chronicles the predictable but tragic rise and fall of a notorious gangster figure. The controversial film was in the planning stages in 1930 - to be produced by versatile co-producer/director Howard Hawks and co-producer Howard Hughes. A working script was readied by January 1931, and after about three months of filming, it was completed later in the year. Although the film was scheduled for release in January 1932, its opening was delayed for a few more months due to Hawks' and Hughes' continuing squabbles with industry censors over its sensationalism and glorification of the gangster menace, and issues regarding the film's retitling.
