Ruthless but charming gangster gets a taste of the good life on the MNet Stars Channel.

Bugsy, directed by Barry Levinson in 1991 and starring Warren Beatty and Annette Bening will be screened on the MNet Stars Channel (105) on December 27 at 19h30.

Ben “Bugsy” Siegel is a ruthless but charming gangster who gets a taste of the good life when he arrives in California. Bugsy befriends movie stars, tries out for a screen test and falls for Virginia Hill, a feisty starlet who shares his taste for glamour and glitz. Things look good until Bugsy’s dream project, a luxury casino in the Las Vegas desert, turns out to be his biggest downfall – and his biggest accomplishment.
