Goodfellas/Kleer-Fax Caption Contest

As many people know from reading our About Us page, prior to 1994 we only made indexing products and loose-leaf paper. Our expansion into expandable products was the result of purchasing a company in Brooklyn called the Saldan Bindery, which carried a brand called Abaca.

Among the employees who came over to Kleer-Fax, we are still fortunate to have the expertise of Pasquale “Butchy” Donadio, who has been working in our industry for more than 50 years!

Among many stories he has is one from when the 1990 film Goodfellas was being filmed just outside of the Saldan Bindery. During a scene later in the film when Karen Hill (Lorraine Bracco) goes to see James Conway (Robert De Niro), many fans have noted that the file folder Mr. De Niro is holding is of among the finest in American manufacturing! However, the inclusion of this prop was inserted at the last minute.

According to Butchy, right before the camera went live someone handed Mr. De Niro the file folder. Some have argued that it made the movie what it was; others have stated that before this scene they were about to turn off their televisions; and, lastly, it has been argued that the best supporting actress should have gone to the file folder, but she was robbed.
