    RIP (?) Henry Hill

    I don't know that everyone would say "Rest in Peace" to a notorious gangster, but the legendary Henry Hill ("Goodfellas") had died.

    (And yes, IMO, worthy of a thread )

    I agree this is thread-worthy--lots of Goodfellas fans here. And yes I too am conflicted re: R I P.

    It certainly is all over.

    He used to call into Howard Stern's show a lot..talk about your complete wacko -- almost took a few points away from the movie for me but I still loved that movie.

    He had everyone believing he was this big mobster.
    He wasn't.

    When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.

    So you're upset not because he was a bad guy, but because he pretended to be a much worse bad guy?

    He aligns himself with Team Conway instead of Team Hill.

    ah....the hypocritical nature of our society...to paint the legacy of mobsters in a shade of halcyon...

    meanwhile, in today's urban environment....
