844 words - 4 pages

From this essay I hope to establish weather ?Goodfellas? conforms to the classical generic conventions of the gangster films of the 1930s or is it in a complete different league of it own?

Again as times have changed, so have the props. ?Goodfellas? has altered props only because it was made some forty years after ?Public Enemy? or ?Little Caesar?. If ?Goodfellas? was made at the same time, the same conventions were props are concer...
