You're like they brought a couple of us back. He added flashback. Yeah. And he wanted a million dollars for the day and the reviews to give it to which I can understand. Yeah. But he was so bitter to go spin forward. That's the only reason I was able to get them to do the freshman. I made it you got him to do the freshman. Yeah. When I saw the freshmen most people didn't see the freshman when I saw the freshman. It is one of the most bizarre movies. I have ever seen in my life because he is playing and making fun of. Of the role. He played in the godfather naturally. I have never seen a film like that with Matthew Broderick in the nineties everybody up great cast. But the thing was that the reason he loved it was because it was a spoof two gentlemen, friends of mine. I did a three picture deal. Would we did strip-tease chances on the freshman? Michael Lebel, Andrew Bergman a great director. So I got very heavy in the film business for a while. I've done like forty six motion pictures, it sounds like one nine Oscars. I mean, that's the other thing with that. So I go to Brando. He's my neighbor have house on Mulholland Drive, and I go see him. I said I got a role for you. You're gonna love this. Is she gonna make fun of the godfather? He's how are we going to do that? We had legal look through it as long as we never mentioned godfather, and we never do because every time Penelope tries to talk about a father. And they said he looks like say he gets married near that. It's very funny. I believe me. I know it's funny. But I want to go back now to when you're filming the godfather again, it's such a classic film. It's hard to believe that a young director of that generation would make a film that has such a classic feel to it. You know? Well, he was raised that way. I knew his mother and father his father was a clarinetist, you know, really. Actually, he he did a lot of the scoring in Italy, Whitney or no Rohde. And that's why when they gave him the Oscar nominated for the Oscar for the score of the movie that wasn't original score. It was from another movie use ago in Italy. And they just stretched it up. Are you kidding? Oh, there's no such thing as an adapted score. There's no you can't get an Oscar for best adapted sour. Wow. I I wanted him to I love this is a great guy and his mother, and you met them through to the film, though. No, I knew the father through a museum another story to the musicians union. No. Right. My with my eyes. You don't have enough time to spend. Okay. So but during the filming of the movie against such a classic movie. What what was it like to be on that set because all those characters? I mean one day. I saw Eva Goethe on the street here Manhattan. He was seventy six. That's right. I was going for colonoscopy, and I felt the way he looked on blah, blah, true. But, but I'm thinking, you know, the the movie all the characters in that movie, the whole thing it really is as close together. It's amazing. I mean Francis at ninety percent, but a lot of it it just happened. Like when Luke O'Brien was studying his lines outside of the same day and new studying lights, they shot it. He was actually studying his lines to say that Damola Brando. What see I didn't know that. That's what I'm saying hitting me shape thing with the kindergarten. We had two twins to play. Michael, son. Yeah. When he's playing with his grandson. So they said play with him. So he's notice guy who's this guy. So he started play with the spray it all of that. And he's chasing the kid around. They started filming it. Genius. You kidding me? A lot of that stuff. Just came to be medicine. As is this like, a Christopher guest spoof. They just said here. He's just go and have fun. And we'll we'll we'll shoot it. Well, Francis gave us that privilege or the wedding. 'cause they really weren't getting it you have everybody in the world of looking at cameras are you going to control the ball? So after wall as how are we going to get this is want you give them some real raw wine and have a party. That's why even my mother in law who who was played by. Magana king who great Jesse. And wasn't that old? You always wonder who these people are. I mean, the mother this is obviously Marlon Brando's wife in the film soul Centric. Who she was dick and could speak Sicilian. And she was friends of a bunch of us. And we offer the tomb saying you should commit to the part and ready loved up. So that was it. She got the part. That's why even at the wedding. That's when she got up and sang because that's what they would do. Everybody just started to be themselves. And the interesting thing Nino Maury L Ellie the ban that was on that stage played at my first wedding. Are you serious band? Nino Morelli Nino Maury Ellie morally from Staten Island still hasn't been yet the guy still alive, but the interesting maybe play my second wedding album making over that. Nobody interesting thing. So they said to me how can we get an Italian band? I got many you want by grandfather's feast we retain been in New York. So I got that pardon. But that's it became a party. And it was a great way to introduce the movie too. I thought because you're seeing the culture unravel Paula give me a goal. You know, that was the football weddings, usually throw the sandwiches. That's why they call them football the Gaba. Google I never I never heard that. They throw sandwiches and stuff and know, the weddings weren't sit down weddings for us. The weddings are a dollar ninety eight thousand dollars. So they had football. Weddings football, weddings, the sandwiches wrapped in a bag. And then like, let's say you ran out of. Gobble, gobble, pursuit you're guilty. Let's say a wrote me a Gama goal, and that's how I became a football wedding. They never who's these things. I never heard that. That's incredible pitches. A beer and wine and sandwiches. And then the trays are cookies sounds like a good time Bono's great, holy guacamole. So that's the original scene. Molino guacamole in those days that was in Mexico. So you had you had. This opening scene, and again, it's so classic. We can't even remember. Now. The one thing that sticks out to me is several. But when they shot the scene with Brando in his office with the people coming in, and whatever it was so dark they wanted to talk. Yeah. But it's just interesting because I ran into film that we did that up in Long Island. All the interiors were not done Staten Island. So all the interiors could be soundproof and all that. And they wanted the the urine the business while you're telling me that a lot of the shot on Staten Island, the whole wedding thing was know that it was a longfellow road. And I knew that house. Well, really when we went out scouting locations. I helped him I got the call. We would drive all over. You know, you always I would always for for whatever reason assume that it's a Hollywood film that it's in Hollywood, whatever. But no ninety percent of that was shot here. I know I needed it. They they need my film about to do. I'm shooting all here. And that's this film. It's my life. Smelly would godfather. I want a job in that picture album. I want Chinese chick and my Bentley and we're gonna impress these executives. We're going to get them in. We're going to a break. I can't believe we're having this conversation. Johnny roussel.
