Quick update on the dates in the movie listed on page 3 of this thread.
Although the shooting script dated Jan 24 1982 gives the 3 time periods as 1923 to 1925, 1931 to 1933 and 1968, these were slightly amended in the movie. Possibly Noodles spending 6 years in a reformatory and a prison weren't long enough for murdering a policeman.
There's a few photos of Leone during the shooting of the scene where Noodles comes out of prison and is met by Max.
The clapperboard clearly shows a date of 1932.
So the amended dates should be:First time period
1922 to 1923 The kids growing up. The death of Dominic. Noodles taken to a reformatory.Second time period
1932 to 1933 Noodles comes out of prison - the adult gang - Max fakes his deathThird time period
