Funny how?  Do I amuse you?  Am I a clown?  Do I make you laugh?  This week we've the film that made Martin Scorsese a made man in GoodFellas. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, and Georgia – as we join the mob for over three decades and watch the rise and fall of Henry Hill, Karen Hill, Jimmy Conway, and Tommy DeVito. We're all feeling like wiseguys in our 35th episode as we discuss:

  • Who turned down the role of Jimmy Conway, to his regret in later years
  • How did the director manage to get his parents cameos in the film
  • How did Martin Scorsese incorporate actor adlibbing into a final script?
  • The real life egomania of Henry Hill
  • How did Jimmy Burke apply his ketchup and why is that so important
  • The genius of the dolly zoom
  • How do you know when you’re paying your prop master too much
  • The filmography of Martin Scorsese and where GoodFellas falls into it
  • Which legendary actor appears in a bit role in GoodFellas without any of his trademark profanity
  • How high is the swear count on this film?
  • Whether or not GoodFellas is the Best Film Ever.
