Francis Ford Coppola’s Original Notes from The Godfather

By: 08.24.11  •  12 Comments

The entertaining Tumblr site Ruin-A-Wish Foundation recently found a book page from a copy of The Godfather that apparently belonged to the film’s eventual director, Francis Ford Coppola. The (we assume, real, otherwise I don’t get the joke) page contains scene notes for the Academy Awards’ 1972 Best Picture winner, and they’re basically incredibly brief and sloppy insight into the mind of the man who created one of the greatest movies of all-time.

You can read the notes for yourself after the jump, and as an added bonus I also personally dug up the scene notes of Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg from Epic Movie.
