Just wondering about Noodles time....as stated in 'something to do with death' it was a six year stretch.
In the BFI book of OUATIA it is also mentioned at six years.
 
I have always had the idea that it was more like 12 years, as Deborah says 4344, 4343. This would tie in from where we see Noodles leaving the early 20's and returning 1933.

Any explanations or views fella's???

I think that six years are too short for a double murder. Remember Noodles killed also A COP.
       12 years for a minor ( I estimate he was 15 years old) seem realistic no ?
        If he obtained a reduction for "good attitude" he left Sing-Sing after ten years, entering jail in             1920 and leaving it in 1930 after the beginning of prohibition
        Three years are enough to build a gang, help teamster syndicate, accept or not contracts and         make a fortune... ?

So funny !
But you and me we need a real street-background as Noodles and the three muskeeters .
People who waste time to dream and chat about movies will never become good gangster. Wink

sorry to keep going on about this people but i am refering back yet again to the hoods, harry grey. the book the film was taken from. in this noodles is the same age when arressted but for a lesser offence than a double murder, can't recall at moment what it was. anyway he only recieved a year and a half inside. i think sergio changed this part of the book for dramatic purposes. if we are looking at the film purely without any other info then noodles was inside for 8 years i think after recieving a 10 -12 year sentence.
