Joseph Barboza was a real gangster for sure and apparently a very gifted
artist, as well. The underworld could use more Portuguese. Speaking of
which, if anyone is interested look up Timothy J. Mello A.K.A "Timmy the
Bat" who was another Portuguese gangster from the East Coast that was also
highly feared like Barboza and even more financially successful than
Barboza and Henry Hill combined. I'm surprised there isn't anything on him
here on youtube.

I just downloaded the book about this guy a long with 9 other mafia related
books as part of a torrent I found while searching for an online copy of
the Last Testament of Lucky Luciano. Can't wait to read it.

he was a nobody ahahha he stole 500k in one robbery wtf has barboza done
accept beat and kill people and collect debts and hills mother was Italian
but in the mafia you're father had to be Italian for you to be a made guy
barboza didn't have the brains to plan robberies thats why he was just a
thug nothing more and nothinmg less even if he was a made man he still only
been a killer and you for real he sold loads drugs have u ever read the
book on hill or u just going of what u saw in GOODFELLAS

There's been no shortage of irish mob movies out of Boston...so it's not as
if the formula doesn't work. You're basically trying to prove an obvious
point....it's like asking me to be surprised the average wage in NYC is
larger than Boston. It's a bigger city with bigger rackets. Never heard of
Ray Patriarca? He ran Boston for 30 years, that's who Barboza was doing
hits for, while Hill was what running errands?

I think a lot of names run common(with slight spelling
variations)throughout that region of the world. I had a mentor last named
Puma and I thought he was Spanish until he told he me was Sicilian.

heist and tell me the powerful gangsters he was in with the vario crew was
one the most dangerous and was one of the biggest earners in the mob

I'm surprised he lasted over 5 years before they wax him . Wax meaning
Killed for the younger viewers that never heard of it before.

Irrelevant, but this is a gay man.

Author JimmyBean456 (7 months)
I'm disputing any of that, but Henry Hill seems more like a hanger on who
just happened to be around some big shit. Barboza seems like more a
gansters gangster.

Years ago, I read Vicent Teresa's book "My life in the Mafia" he talks of
Barboza all throughout the book. The way he described him, you'd swear he
was some type of human gorilla who only grunted.

It was filmed in 1970. This man murdered my husband in 1972. He was in
prison for this murder for 2yrs. But the trial lasted 3yrs....then the
conviction.

i'm saying what did henry hill do? pass on a tip about lufthansa? the rest
of the movie he's just a drug addict descending in the logical conclusion
of being busted and having to turn informant. Barboza was on the frontlines
of one of the bloodiest gang wars in modern America....that's plenty for a
film. He was in a crew with Steve Flemmi.

Hate to break this news to you. Natalie is a pervert. She's a femdom and
her former husband Jack was a perv also. In the 80s Natalie had a life size
mechanical robot which she would show off on air at times. One time a
cableman was inside her house and he saw the robot with the groin section
missing and while working inside the house he found the missing section
with a penis attached to it. Natalie's perverted lifestyle was discovered
(homemovies) and she was forced to resign from channel 5.

called "a genius with a carbine " which is some qoute .. .Anyhow If he is
your Uncle you shou ld write a book a I don't know of any around , but
would be interesting .Cheers

that scene from the movie with johny depp was taken from this interview,
when barbosa says when they say our froiends its means a mde men if they
say just the name they arent connected... barbosa himself was never made a
made men cause he was of portuguese ascent not italian but was one of the
best hit man that the italian familys had

Author BRAD STAR (7 months)
course ive heard of him i like all LCN stuff but you said fuck henry hill
barboza should have a film about him so i said why tho what has he done
what big mafia stuff has he been associated with you read wiseguys bio on
hills life theres loads in it and what has average wage got to do without ?
in detriot the wage wouldn't be as much as new york but there mafia has
great stuff to read about , so i ask you again what did barboza done to
have a film about him i mean theres no really film about

Author JimmyBean456 (7 months)
That's because Gambino wasn't flashy he was a quiet dude. Though many say
Uncle Jun from the Sopranos is an homage to him. Gambino just doesn't make
good material when you think of the people around him...who would you make
a movie about Lucky Luciano or Carlo Gambino?
