“Bugsy” boasts an incredible, all-star cast including Warren Beatty, Annette Bening, Harvey Keitel, Ben Kingsley and Elliott Gould. So, it’s a little surprising that the story of mobster Bugsy Siegel and the notorious Flamingo Casino didn’t pick up the Oscar for Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor. Instead it won Best Art Direction and Costume Design.

Director Barry Levinson should have threatened to break the Academy’s kneecaps.

You can watch this Oscar-winning classic online right now.
