Question: There are three filming locations that I haven't been able to identify. All three have been falsely identified on numerous sites. I'm heading to Sicily next month, and would like to shoot some images of them, if I can find them. All three are from The Godfather Part II. 1. Don Ciccio's villa. As seen early in the film, when Vito's mother is killed, and he escapes. Then seen later, when Vito returns as an adult to kill Don Ciccio. No, it is not Castello degli Schiavi, as commonly believed. 2. The Corleone train station. Also used twice in the film. First, for Vito's arrival, as an adult, and later, for his departure. It is obviously a small country train station, with the signs changed. 3. The olive oil mill/facility of Don Tommasino. This is where young Michael, in his fathers arms, makes such a cute face when he tastes an olive. I'm a teacher, using the trilogy in my classes, and would love to present some photos to my students, so any help would be appreciated.
Question: Maybe its my maths or I misheard something but the figures don't seem to add up for me. In Godfather 2, Vito Corleone is about 7 yrs old in 1901 and moves to New York after his family is killed. In Godfather 1, it is said the year was "almost 1942" (I think). So that makes Don Corleone about 50 ish when he died of a heart attack. Is this correct? He looked a lot older, plus head of a crime family in his early 40s doesn't seem right to me either. Am I missing something? I'm not listing this as a mistake as I'm unsure of the timings etc. so if anyone can shed any light on this for me it would be appreciated.
Question: In Godfather II, during the attempted murder of Pentagelli in the bar. One of the hit men tells Pentagelli "Michael Corleone says hello" as they begin to strangle him. Why? Mike didn't OK the hit on Pentagelli, did he? Roth and Mike's other enemies could not have known or timed the cop coming into the closed bar, resulting in Pentagelli surviving the attack and thinking Mike wanted him dead. So turning to the FBI and testifying and against Michael.
Question: Whatever happened to Sonny's wife and children?
Question: When Vito Corleone visits Sicily with his family, he is received by an old woman and a man. These people are the ones who helped Vito to escape when he was a child. However, when they are having lunch together, Vito refers to her as "grandmother". Are the old woman and the man members of the family? What are their names?
Question: When Vito Corleone visits Sicily with his family, he is received by an old woman and a man. This people are the ones, I suppose, who helped Vito to escape when he was a child. However, when they are having lunch together, Don Vito refers to her as "grandmother" when telling his son to give her a gift. So, are the old woman and the man members of the family? And, what are their names?
Question: After Vito kills the black hand he goes back up to the roof and smashes the gun into about 6 pieces. He puts the parts down spouts sticking out from the roof. What were these spouts and where did they go? He also put one piece down what looked like a chimney. Wouldn't that land in someones fireplace and be discovered?
Question: What exactly did Fredo do to help Roth (that led to the assassination attempt at Lake Tahoe)? Fredo says ‘I never knew they would try to kill you'. Ok, but what was going on exactly then? What did he think was going on? What *was* going on? All we know is Michael's room got shot up and Fredo betrayed him, leading to the event.
