NEW YORK– Francis Ford Coppola and the cast of “The Godfather” reunited for one night and a double feature at Radio City Music Hall to commemorate the film’s 45th anniversary.
The Tribeca Movie Festival closed out its 16th edition Saturday with a grand double feature of “The Godfather,” parts one and 2. After the screenings, Coppola was signed up with by cast members Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton and Talia Shire on a phase decorated like the library of Marlon Brando’s put on. A portrait of Brando hung above.
The group spoke frequently about the simple origins of the work of arts. Coppola stated he was “dissatisfied” in Mario Puzo’s book when he initially read it. Pacino remembered believing early in the shooting that it was “the worst movie ever made.”
