>Two-Toed’s Life and Film Canned

10 Oct


It’s too bad but Tommy Trialdo, the gangster whose blog I linked to before and whose life was the basis for a lot of stuff in “Goodfellas” has been killed. It apparently happened on the 27th of September according to Quentin Tarantino over on his blog. Tarantino has decided not to make a movie in light of this despite the widow’s permission to do so.

It turns out Two-Toes was shot before giving a speech to youth about the dangers of crime. Now we know the real life ending to “Goodfellas.”

It’s interesting that I can’t find this reported on *anywhere* on the web. No amount of Googling seems to be able to find an article on it.

    >I was just finding the same. No mention of Trialdo by Google from many angles of searching *except* in reference from Tarantino’s site, and the alleged Two Toes blog on blogspot. Hmmm…interesting read, anyway. I am reluctant to conclude anything from it, as I had never previously heard of the man. Still, the possibility that the whole thing is a hoax looms larger the less I find…Cheers,M@

    >Which part do you think is a hoax? Trialdo himself or his death? I don’t think Tarantino would just lie like that, but I guess I don’t have evidence to point the other way. Either way, I don’t have any real reason to doubt it, either.
