Goodfellas

Tommy is supposed to get made, but instead is killed for murdering Billy Batts. Henry gets arrested on narcotics charges. In a panic, Karen flushes the last of Henry's supply down the toilet, which he was counting on after she bails him out of jail. Left with nothing, Henry asks Paulie for money; he gives him $3,200 and is forced to turn his back on Henry. Jimmy asks Henry to do a hit in Florida, but Henry is worried that he won't return from the job. He joins the Witness Protection Program and gets Jimmy and Paulie convicted and put into prison. After that, Henry comments on finding it hard leaving the gangster life and living the rest of it like a 'schnook'. The end credits reveal that Henry was arrested again on drug charges in 1987, but has been clean thereafter, Karen left him after 25 years of marriage in 1989, Paulie died in prison in 1988 at the age of 73, and that Jimmy is not eligible for parole until 2004 when he would be 78 years old.

Continuity mistake: When Paulie and Jimmy go to visit Henry at his girlfriend Janice's apartment to talk to him, after Paulie sits down and begins the conversation with Henry, both a Star of David pendant and a crucifix pendant can be seen hanging from the necklace around Henry's neck. At first the Star of David is hanging over the crucifix, then it has switched to the crucifix hanging over the Star of David. (01:16:15)

Question: In the voice over planning the Lufthansa heist. It's said that Joe Budda and Frenchy were supposed to tie up the guards and keep them from the alarms. Frenchy worked at the airport. No matter if he wore a mask or not, it would be a gigantic risk of being recognized for Frenchy to be anywhere near the guards who work at the same airport. How could this be?
