Once in a while, a movie adaptation creates a character that is drawn so well it becomes an  archetype, a measuring stick for all other similar characters. Think John Wayne, the western tough in "True Grit," which was adapted from the Charles Portis novel. Or Ray Liotta, the New York hood in "Goodfellas," adapted from the book "Wiseguy. " News comes today of the death of Henry Hill, the real-life gangster-turned-informant who was the lifeblood of "Wiseguy" and Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas.

ROBERT DE NIRO is not the easiest interview in the business. Ask him a question that has nothing to do with his personal life, and he is likely to tell you that it is a personal matter. He'll answer some questions, but he is just as likely to shrug, look at his audience and bring a particular line of interrogation to a halt.He is appearing in the new film ''GoodFellas,'' based on the book ''Wiseguy'' by Nicholas Pileggi, one of our leading authorities on the Mafia. Martin Scorsese directed.

MARTIN Scorsese's ''GoodFellas'' is a good film, maybe a great film, but it is also difficult to watch at times. At times, it is so brutal you will find yourself looking away. At other times, it is very funny, and you will wonder why you are laughing at a movie with this much brutality.The new film, which may be the best Scorsese has ever done, is based on ''Wiseguy,'' the book by Nicholas Pileggi, perhaps the nation's foremost authority on the Mafia.Pileggi's book was based on the experiences of a half-Irish, half-Sicilian mobster who just seemed to fall into it.The future mobster was born in a neighborhood where the gangster was the big guy and where everyone else treated him with respect.

I like a movie that takes a moral stand. Martin Scorsese's "GoodFellas," a violent look at the authentic Mafia, focuses exclusively on the deadly tools of the trade. It makes the clear and resonant point that Italian sausage should be banned.Before and after every hit, these swarthy, laughing tribal barbarians settle down to a hearty meal, a curly tube of dead pig smothered in glops of tomato guts, shreds of pepper, basil, oregano, garlic slices, fennel, fried onion, some Chianti, wads of bread soaked in butter.
