Goodfellas, per the copy above.
Godfather or Goodfellas?... that's a hard call.
The film was originally called Wiseguy, then Made Men, then Good Fellas, but on preview night Saul Bass’ Psycho-influenced title sequence read simply Goodfellas. Warner Bros. had slotted the movie to debut at the 47th Venice International Film Festival in early September and planned to release it in nearly 2,000 U.S. theaters on September 21, months ahead of the year’s most anticipated gangster movie, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather: Part III.
But once the Goodfellas sneak preview got rolling, things went haywire, right from the hero’s first line of narration: “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.”
“People started running out of that theater like the place was on fire,” recalls Winkler today. “We had 38 walkouts alone after the scene where Joe Pesci’s character, Tommy DeVito, knifes the body of Billy Batts in the trunk of a car. And that was just the beginning of the movie. The screening didn’t go badly. It was disastrous.”

The UK publishers are lucky there isn't an Editorial Standards Authority. Imagine the mayhem that would ensue then.
The ASA [Advertising Standards Authority ] said that the model’s youthful appearance, minimal makeup and slightly-too-large clothes contributed to the impression that she was under 16.
The decision to shoot the ad through a partially opened door, with the model reclining on a bed, gave the image a “voyeuristic feel”.
“We considered that the crumpled sheets and her partially opened mouth also enhanced the impression that her pose was sexually suggestive,” the ASA said.
Thailand is cool with it:
