The Making of Goodfellas

Pileggi: You’re into page 11 [of the script], right? And Marty says, [talking really fast, à la Scorsese] “Put a note, make a note, make a note: Window. Just write window.” He’s thinking he’s got a window shot. Or “Just write Cream.” I didn’t even know what Cream was. I was still listening to Frank Sinatra.

Christopher Brooks (music editor): Marty once told me that he knew what all of the songs were going to be three years before he shot the film. There was no music supervisor. Marty is the music supervisor.
