It would not be wrong to say that the film, which is one of the cornerstones of cinema today, actually came into existence as a result of coincidences. There are many unplanned, accidental moments in the film, from the author Mario Puzo’s selling the rights to his novel to Paramount Pictures to the appointment of Francis Ford Coppola to head the project, from the improvisation of the memorable lines to the magnificent scenes shot using the guerilla method.
Of course, we should not forget the discussions that Francis Ford Coppola had with Paramount Pictures on issues such as the role of Marlon Brando and Al Pacino in the movie, the fact that the movie is a period movie in accordance with the book, and it takes place in New York.
