Book Vs. Movie

Wiseguy Vs Goodfellas


The Margos have no fear of getting whacked after this episode as we are huge fans of both the Nicholas Pileggi 1986 nonfiction book and the classic 1990 film directed by Martin Scorsese. Here we compare and contrast between book versus movie and have some big opinions about them.

Discussed in this ep:

  • How the book came to be
  • Why Martin Scorsese chose to direct another mob picture after Mean Streets
  • The main differences between the real life criminals and the actors who played them.
  • The frenzied life of Henry Hill
  • Those classic over-the-top scenes in the movie
  • What happened to all of the main characters
