20 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About 'Goodfellas'
Without Goodfellas, we wouldn’t have The Sopranos. Perhaps we wouldn’t have Breaking Bad either, and certainly we wouldn’t have Analyze This. Or Analyze That, for that matter. It's one of the most iconic movies over the past century with it's buckwild morality, buckwild characters, and buckwild story. It's in the AFI Top 100 Films of All Time and in the U.S. Library of Congress for a reason.
And yet, for such a milestone of a movie, there’s a lot we don’t know about it -- and by “we,” we mean Cracked writers, of course. So we started digging around, and found all these facts about its production and shooting (“shooting” as in filming the movie, not firing real guns -- we hope). And now we’re sharing this knowledge with you, because we are … hum … Nice pals? Kind comrades? Congenial gents? Cordial individuals? Okay people? Call us whatever, and enjoy these.
