  • The New York Filming Locations of The Godfather, Then and Now

    On March 29, 1971, The Godfather, considered by many to be one of the greatest films ever made, began principal photography in New York City. Because the film is a period piece,The Godfather actually presents a fascinating record of what 1940s-era New York City locations still existed in the early-1970s. Sadly, many of them are now gone. What still remains? Let’s take a closer look.

  • Obama's Godfather Speech: The president sounds more like a Corleone than a Roosevelt (Wow!)

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | December 8, 2011 | Daniel Henninger, deputy editor, editorial page
    Most press accounts of Barack Obama's speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, Tuesday described it as delivered by the "president of the United States." And indeed the person delivering it analogized himself to Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and Bill Clinton. In fact, the Osawatomie speech was not given by the President of the United States. It was given by the leader of the Democratic Party. Most of the time, this distinction isn't a problem in the United States because historically people have tended to think that the office of the presidency represents "all the people." This doesn't mean everyone...

  • Couple Endures Death Threat, Vandalism Over Romney Sign

    09/29/2012 10:26:52 AM PDT · by Signalman · 80 replies ^ | 9/28/2012 | Tad Cronn
    Business owners Dee and Gene Liboff of Woodland Hills, California, just wanted to show their support for Mitt Romney in the coming election by putting up a handmade sign in front of their home. But what they were shown in return is the ugly side of some Obama supporters. Ever since putting up the sign, the Liboffs, who are members of the San Fernando Valley Patriots, have been engaged in a running war with vandals who have cut, pulled down, torn apart and ripped the sign out of the ground. Every time it happens, the Liboffs get out the tape...
  • Why I’m Voting for Mitt Romney and Why You Should Too

    The first reason is easy: Barack Obama. It is shocking to think that a Marxist could ever be president of the United States. But it happened. People always ask, “How could those people have sat back while ________________ came to power. That could never happen here.” Well, it did happen here. As a nation, we sat back and let Barack Obama win in 2008, and look at what we got. Granted, John McCain was not much of an alternative. Some people might argue that the reason I don’t like Barack Obama is because he’s black. There’s no truth it. There...

    Paramount and the estate of Mario Puzo have come to an understanding on the release of the long-disputed, Puzo-outlined prequel novel The Family Corleone, after the latter made the studio a mediation offer it couldn't refuse, and other allusions to the movie that will soon follow. After the book detailing Vito Corleone's rise to power in Depression-era New York debuted in bookstores and online last Tuesday, the late author's son revealed that Paramount and the estate had reached a deal "several weeks ago" to put all of its profits in escrow until they can reach an agreement on the publishing...

    A Charlotte County man is accused of injuring his girlfriend during a domestic dispute over cannolis, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office. According to reports, Scott DeCesare got into an argument with his girlfriend because she ate all of the cannolis. The girlfriend told deputies he was so angry he flipped over a coffee table in the living room, causing damage to it. She said she threw his dinner in the trash because she was mad at him. He then allegedly threw the food at her, hitting her in the shoulder and the face, reports said. DeCesare allegedly then...

    A top Democrat in the Senate took a rare direct shot at GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney on Tuesday, arguing that Romney's past support of health care reform means the issue is "off the table" during the fall elections. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York, the Democratic Conference vice chairman and former head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, blasted Romney during an outdoor press conference near the Supreme Court. The court is spending this week reviewing the constitutionality of the 2010 health care reform law that is President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement. Schumer said Romney's support of a...
  • 'The Godfather': Francis Ford Coppola's Secret Family History

    Moviefone ^ | 03/23/2012 | Gary Susman
    One reason for the longevity of "The Godfather" over the past 40 years is that, behind its gangster plot, is a classic story of an American family, tracing its journey from immigration and poverty toward assimilation and success. In fact, it's not just the story of the Corleone family, but of the Coppola family as well. The movie feels like a personal glimpse into a family album, but it's director/co-screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola's family album as much as it is the fictional Michael Corleone's. True, the characters came from Mario Puzo's novel. But, on screen, Coppola not only invested them...

    The primary’s on Saturday the 21st. He’s promising to endorse on Thursday the 19th at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, which happens to be hosting a presidential debate that same day. He’s timing it for maximum impact, in other words, right down to his choice of which primary to target: As a Georgia native, he might have a bit more sway over voters in SC than he would have had over Iowans, assuming he has any sway left over anyone. Question: Who would value his endorsement the most? Perry’s desperate for positive buzz of any kind but Cain’s already ruled...

  • Who is Herman Cain and why should we care?

    I admit that when five of the Republican candidates for president appeared at their lecterns in the first televised debate of the season, I said to myself, oh no. Not another black guy. We’ve already been snookered into electing the first black president who has turned out to be a total flop at managing the country. I watched the entire debate, however, and by the time it was over, I was convinced we should have waited and made this guy our first black president. We should have withheld the honor until a black candidate appeared whose job application showed him...

    Former pizza chain CEO, tea partier and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain closed out CPAC on day two, declaring that "the American Dream is under attack," and that "stupid people are ruining America." Cain said that the American Dream is being attacked by what he calls "the -ations" -- legislation, regulation, and taxation. He continued that Republicans need to repeal and replace health care reform, and also "throw out" the "messed up tax code" and replace it with a new system. The "objective of the liberals is to destroy America," he Cain continued, but "if you can get...

    Caan, who appeared in the classic mobster film "The Godfather", even offered to stand bail for alleged Mafia hitman Andrew "Andy Mush" Russo. He revealed the alleged killer is godson to his son Scott, star of the TV crime series Hawaii 50. The 76-year-old Colombo family crime boss was among the more than 125 suspected mob members seized in a series of coordinated raids across New York and New Jersey last week. The takedown was the biggest operation mounted by US authorities to smash the five crime families running organised crime in New York. Russo is alleged to have killed...

    Movie fans already know the "Godfather" house, located in the New York City borough of Staten Island, inside and out. It's where Don Corleone lived. But few ever imagined that they themselves could live in mafia high style. has the scoop. It takes a lot to get us interested in Staten Island property -- at least until that subway becomes a reality -- but when a house hits the market with its own English pub in the basement, and that's the second most interesting thing about it, we definitely take notice. The "Post" 's Jennifer Gould Keil reported today...
