Oct 15, 2019

Francis Ford Coppola discusses his film ‘The Godfather’ being played in former Trump aide Roger Stone’s trail, in a new interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber. Coppola argues if the movie is ‘relevant to the case,’ then prosecutors are right to play the movie. Coppola says ‘Godfather has become part of the culture,’ and politics because ‘some of the most unattractive political leaders in the world’ share The Godfather as ‘their favorite movie.’ Coppola discusses why he is re-releasing his mafia-inspired film ‘The Cotton Club,’ and why he wanted to right the studio’s pressure to originally limit the portrayal of some black artists in the film. Aired on 10/14/19.
