Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“Good. Try the veal — it’s the best in the city.”
In this scene, mob boss Virgil Sollozzo (Al Lettieri), Police Capt. Mark McCluskey (Sterling Hayden) and Corleone family member Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) are in a small Italian restaurant in the Bronx (part of New York City) and are preparing to order. Capt. McCluskey asks Sollozzo line one and he replies with line two. This meeting had been set up by Sollozzo, for what Capt. McCluskey and Sollozzo think is going to be a discussion over dinner, to clear up any misunderstanding with Michael. However, Sonny Corleone (James Caan) learns where the meeting is to be held and asks some other Corleone family members if they know anything about the place. “Sal” Tessio (Abe Vigoda) says, “It’s perfect for us. A small family place, good food. Everyone minds his business. It’s perfect. Pete, they got an old-fashion toilet — you know, the box, and – and – and – ah the chain-thing. We might be able to tape the gun behind it.” At dinner, after Michael retrieves a gun taped behind a toilet water tank in the bathroom (hidden there by family member Pete Clemenza), he shoots both Capt. McCluskey and Sollozzo. “The Godfather” follows the lives of a fictional American crime family, but many of the incidents in the story are based on incidents from real life. For example, the wedding of Vito Corleone’s daughter Connie (Talia Shire) to gangster Carlo Rizzi (Gianni Russo) was supposedly modeled on the real-life wedding of mobster Bill Bonanno (son of Brooklyn Mafia don Joe Bonanno) in 1956 to Rosalie Profaci, niece of one of the heads of another of the five New York crime families.
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “And that also is very convenient, isn’t it, Mr. Dufresne?” “Since I am innocent of this crime, sir, I find it decidedly *inconvenient* that the gun was never found.”
