Henry Hill knew he wanted to be a gangster by the time he was 13 years old. But after 20 years of gambling, arson and drug dealing he had to go into witness protection to avoid getting whacked. Nicholas Pileggi wrote the book on Hill and it caught the eye of director Martin Scorsese. In 1990, Scorsese turned Hill's so-crazy-it-must-be-true story into the Oscar nominated GoodFellas. Featuring archival interviews with stars Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Robert DeNiro, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino, and director Martin Scorsese.
During the summer of 1916, the resort beaches of the Jersey Shore ran red with blood. For 12 days the Jersey man-eater terrorized the Eastern Seaboard.

These real life shark attacks inspired Peter Benchley's best-selling book in 1974 and Steven Spielberg's 1975 hit thriller "Jaws". Featuring archival interviews from Steven Spielberg, and the film's stars Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfus.
