47. The Godfather Part II (1974, Francis Ford Coppola)
Oh, Michael. Michael, you are blind. It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Michael. Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that’s unholy and evil. I didn’t want your son, Michael! I wouldn’t bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Michael! It was a son Michael! A son! And I had it killed because this must all end!
SLYTHERIN: “There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” -Francis Ford Coppola + Mario Puzo (Michael Corleone: The Godfather Part II)
Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando are the only actors to win an Academy Award for playing the same role. The role was Don Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather, in which Brando won for playing the elderly mob boss, and De Niro won in The Godfather Part II playing the young, up and coming Italian mob leader.
