Question: Which Martin Scorsese movie was based on the life of former mobster Henry Hill?
Answer: Henry Hill, Jr. was a mobster associated with the Lucchese crime family. Hill’s life story was documented in the book Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family by Nicholas Pileggi. Wiseguy was subsequently adapted by Martin Scorsese into the critically acclaimed film Goodfellas, in which Hill was portrayed by Ray Liotta. Goodfellas is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in the crime genre. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, with Pesci winning Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
