"Goodfellas" Henry Hill Dead; Inspired Scorsese Film
The East New York neighborhood that was a focal point in the 1990 Martin Scorsese film, "Goodfellas," still remembers the movie's lead character--mob associate, Henry Hill--who died Tuesday in Los Angeles, a day after his 69th birthday. "Goodfellas"--starring Ray Liotta as Hill--told the story of Hill's evolution from mafia protégé to a detested, government informant--forced to enter the Witness Protection program.
