Pizza Moments in Hollywood #2: Pizza as a Way to Get Whacked
GoodFellas (USA, 1990). Young Henry Hill (Christopher Serrone) makes his parents proud when he gets an entry-level job with the mob—that is, until the truancy notices from school start piling up. When Henry tells his boss, Tuddy Cicero (Frank DiLeo), he has to quit, Tuddy shanghais the mailman to the local pizza parlor. From now on, all letters from the school go directly to the pizzeria, or the mailman’s going in the oven with the pies—headfirst.
