Docuementary: The Real Goodfella

The blockbuster gangster movie “The Goodfellas” was based on this man’s life. Henry Hill tells us was really like being a gangster and what made him turn FBI informant, from the horses mouth.


Henry Hill Jr. (June 11, 1943 – June 12, 2012) was a New York City mobster of mixed Irish and Italian descent, specifically from Sicily. Between 1955 and 1980, Hill was associated with the Lucchese crime family. After he turned FBI informant in 1980, Hill testified against Lucchese captain Paul Vario and James Burke, both of whom were convicted on multiple charges. Hill’s life story was documented in the true crime book Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family by Nicholas Pileggi.[6]. In Martin Scorsese’s 1990 film adaptation, Goodfellas, Hill is the protagonist and is played by Ray Liotta.
