Trailer for the film on YouTube:

If you have not seen the film Goodfellas yet, make it a goal to do so.  Robert De Niro was already a huge heavyweight in Hollywood when this film came out.  Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta would become household names once this film was released.  Martin Scorsese would use his amazing skills as a film auteur and editor to craft an amazing piece of Mafia Crime Drama. - Phil

Wikipedia.org Article for the novel Wiseguy (1985), written by Nicholas Pileggi:

Wikipedia.org Article for the real Henry Hill:

Based on true events and characters found in the book “Wiseguy”, it chronicles the story of Mafia associate Henry Hill JR. from the years 1955-1980.  As you see young Henry grow up from selling and moving stolen cigarettes to his days as an FBI informant, it is not the story that totally drives the film, but the execution and amazing work of Director Scorsese and the actors. - Phil

 Goodfellas: The Making Of A Classic on YouTube:

It is an Academy Award winner that captures the feeling of the Mafia, as well as the period pieces that it chronicles.  Even though it takes place in a recent history, it still captures a charm from the olden days, which probably owes a gratitude to the great vast Italian culture that gives it that galvanizing vintage appeal.  It is a film with everything and a modern classic of extraordinary proportions.  - Phil
