  • Theatrical release: December 1991. Filmed in Pasadena, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Mojave Desert, CA; and, Las Vegas, NV. Harvey Keitel won the 1991 Best Supporting Actor Award from the Chicago Film Critics. Barry Levinson was named Best Director of 1991 by the Los Angeles Film Critics. Additionally, the L.A. Critics awarded BUGSY Best Film. Bugsy was named one of the 10 Best Films of the year by the National Board of Review. The National Board of Review also named Warren Beatty Best Actor. Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's onscreen romance carried over into their offscreen lives, and the couple eventually married. Bening's subsequent pregnancy resulted in her turning the role of Catwoman in 1992's BATMAN RETURNS over to Michelle Pfeiffer. Two other 1991 films featured portrayals of Bugsy Siegel: MOBSTERS, in which a young Bugsy was played by Richard Grieco; and THE MARRYING MAN, in which Siegel was played by Armand Assante. Siegel's casino, The Flamingo, was named after girlfriend Virginia Hill's legs. Nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Beatty), Best Director (Levinson), and two nominations for Best Supporting Actor (Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley), the film walked away with the awards for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration and Best Costume Design.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Beatty is terrific....Bening also makes a knockout impression..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...An enthralling affirmation of everything Toback has ever wanted to put on film..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...[A] very assured film....[Beatty] brings an enormous amount of brassy self-confidence to bear in this role, one that he clearly understands from the inside out..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Barry Levinson and production designer Dennis Gassner brilliantly evoke the corrupt glamour of Bugsy's illicitly glamorous world."
    Uncut

    "The first hour or so of Barry Levinson's biopic still tingles with smarts and venom." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Mr. Levinson was the dominant force on the set, and the film duly reflects his fundamentally comic sensibility..."
    New York Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Oscar-winning costumes and art direction provide a glossy sense of time and place."
