A good, ten-minute documentary that can be found on the Special Edition release of Martin Scorsese's GOODFELLAS. Henry Hill, the real wise guy that the film and book were based on, talks about what it was like getting up each day not knowing if it was going to be your last. Hill shares plenty of memories about the real life events and talks about how accurate Scorsese got them in the actual film. Also on hand is executive producer Barbara DeNFina who questions whether or not the lives of a wise guy was actually better than the so called "suckers", as they'd call them, who actually went to a normal job each day. Nicholas Pileggi, Paul Sorvino and Frank Vincent also share their opinions on the lifestyle and what it must be like living that way. Scorsese appears in an archival interview and tells a rather funny story that seems so true. THE WORKADAY GANGSTER is a fairly good featurette that is nice because you get to hear from the real guy that was behind the story. It's certainly nothing ground-breaking and there's no question that it could have been longer but for what it is the thing is worth watching.
