Publisher: Black Dog & LeventhalIt's like seeing the movie all over again, but with Francis Ford Coppola sitting next to you on the couch. Robert Redford was offered the part of Michael Corleone. John Wayne asked Frank Sinatra if he'd like him to punch out Mario Puzo.
I was surprised to be reminded that Al Pacino and Diane Keaton were absolute unknowns before The Godfather; I was shocked to be reminded that the picture was released 35 years ago. Ouch.
