5 Arrests in 35yr Old Goodfellas Case

 

5 Arrests have been made in the Lufthansa job after 35 yrs.  This is the heist that was referenced in Goodfellas resulting in the deaths of most of the participants.

In the movie, Di Nero plays Jimmy Conway (Jimmy The Gent Burke in real life), who executes the biggest heist in US history.  Expecting to score $2 million, the haul is actually $6 million.

Rather than pay out the shares, Jimmy decides to whack most of the participants.

Here is the Wikipedia for Jimmy Burke:

Here are those murdered after the Lufthansa Heist.  These murders follow closely the deaths in the movie:

White Collar – Financial Crimes

Posted in Movies, White Collar Crimes with tags , , on November 26, 2011 by mobflix

Everything I’ve ever learned about finance I learned from these movies:

– Wall Street
– Trading Places
– Boiler Room

We start White Collar / Financial Crimes feature with Wall Street.

This movie really highlighted the causes of the market crash in the 1980’s. Leveraged Buyouts, Insider Information, Junk Bonds, Corporate Raiders. In the 80’s everybody was doing it. Only a few people had the foresight not to follow the crowd and get out before the collapse. This movie really gets to the heart of 80’s Wall Street Greed.

Michael Douglas as Gordon Gecko was exceptional. See the original movie and you’ll know why he won the academy award. Charlie Sheen was perfect as Bud Fox, and Daryl Hannah was hot.
