Female DeathsEdit



  1. Francis Ford Coppola had only a year to write, direct and edit the film.
  2. Coincidentally, the Vatican Bank once owned Paramount Pictures.
  3. Mary Corleone's (Sofia Coppola's) aunt is played by Sofia's real-life aunt, Talia Shire.
  4. Al Pacino stated that he did not agree with the portrayal of Michael in the film. He didn't believe that Michael would ever feel regret or remorse for his actions, especially the murder of his brother.
  5. The first of only two trilogies to have all three films nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. The other is Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
  6. Francis Ford Coppola once admitted that he was still unhappy over the final result, because of lack of time on working with the script. According to him, he wanted six million dollars for the writer, producer, and director fee with six months work on the scriptwriting. The studio instead gave him only one million dollars in fees and six weeks to work on the script, in order to meet the Christmas 1990 release. He also regretted that the character of Tom Hagen had to be written out of the script because the studio refused to meet Robert Duvall's financial demands. According to Coppola, with Hagen gone, an essential character and counterpart for Michael Corleone was missing from the movie.
