It could have been like one of the key guys in godfather to his whole career would have been. I mean this happens again in three when when Duval returned for three unforgivable -gree. Well, he just wanted money for three he wanted five looking Tom Hagan, and he's still alive, and they just kill them off quietly. They should have paid him five million. I should've it's one of the biggest reasons why three doesn't work like you need the counterweight. He is the counterweight to Michael he's so important to Michael in two and he'd bring in George Hamilton instead so much worse. So I guess we could save this for godfather to commence a is whether the move is better with Clemenza she like Franken five fingers, but they're just two two five eight five inch. It's too. It's too.

While Sinn natural was so mad about the apparent similarities to Janney Fontaine, he berated. Mario Puzo donate and Bill. Simmons was so bad about this. Reaction berated him at a near cuts at a Los Angeles hot. But about the cake. I bet it was more like the way wolves parades guys. That was no friction natural that we tastes that. To my kraut, Mick friend kit be made to look ridiculous. Pacino really did have his jaw wired shut for the first part of that shoot. Fucking. Of course, second great actor.
