I didn’t know pretty much any of this and Goodfellas means EVERYTHING to me. A great read from the excellent Alex Godfrey!!
That was a GREAT read! I’m going to have to watch Goodfellas tonight. I had no idea he wasn’t a professional actor!
I’ll be checking this out on the ride home - Goodfellas was for a long time my favourite film, and it remains top 5 to this day.
I’ve seen it more times than I can count, to the point that I can find flaw in a few sections, particularly the actor playing Karen’s mother (and the paper license plate that falls off the car as Karen drives away from Jimmy’s dress warehouse).
Last Exit sells a Morrie’s Wigs t-shirt - I’d wear it if I weren’t bald/ing.
ha! I’ve never noticed that license plate thing!
That was a great read. Morrie is one of the great characters in that movie; he and Jimmy Two Times are some of my favorites, some of my favorites. If you had told me he was De Niro’s landlord, I would have asked in which movie.
