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.
