When Frank Sheeran First Met Russell Bufalino

In Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses, the source material for The Irishman, Frank Sheeran writes that he met Russell Bufalino (played by Joe Pesci in The Irishman) in “the mid-fifties, maybe 1955.”

That means that in the gas station scene in the film (screengrabbed below), De Niro’s Frank Sheeran is about 35, and Pesci’s Russell Bufalino, who was born in 1903, is about 52. I buy it:
