My Original Newsweek Cover of Francis Ford Coppola and Godfather II

I had to threaten to resign from Newsweek to get Godfather II on the cover! This story came out just before its release and I did gloat when it won six Oscars several months later.  Now, on the 45th anniversary re-release of what is considered one of the great movie classics of all time, you can hear from the young rebel Frances Coppola, George Lucas, Al Pacino, Federico Fellini, Nino Rota, Dino De Laurentiis, etc., about how the film got made and Coppola’s dreams for the future of Hollywood and himself. He got 13 percent of the gross. And he promised there would never be a Godfather III!
