For all those who say you should never use voice-over narration in your scripts:
“How can you be afraid of voiceover? You certainly can’t expect people to read what’s on the computer. I just love voice-over. I adore it. It’s great, especially when it’s right for the movie. I mean, I’m married to Nick Pileggi. Didn’t you see Goodfellas?“
Three time Oscar-nominated screenwriter Nora Ephron (Silkwood, Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally…)

P.S. A few years ago I interviewed Michael Franzese (Mikey Franzese in the Goodfellas intro) in Los Angeles for a TV program. Fortune magazine once listed him as number 18 of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses.” (He even used some of his wealth to be an executive producer on a few movies in the 80s.) He wrote a book called Quitting the Mob and you can read about his journey on his website.
