Mario Puzo

The late novelist/screenwriter would’ve turned 89 this week. In this clip, he discusses, among other things, the process of adapting his novel, The Godfather, to the screen.

(NOTE: I’ve argued — always to the wild disapproval of friends and family — that the murder of Fredo was unnecessary. Here, the author shares that he never intended for Fredo to be killed, but that Coppola kind of forced his hand. Hmm.)
