Goodfellas Painting

"One dog goes one way and the other goes the other."

John Fugelsang posted this picture on Twitter today. I thought it looked familiar. Then I remembered where I'd seen it. It's a great scene from Martin Scorcese's Goodfellas.

It was painted by Nicholas Pileggi's mother, and is based on a photograph from the November 1978 issue of National Geographic. Pileggi was the author of Wise Guy the nonfiction mob book on which Goodfellas is based.
