Why the Italian Mafia Hated The Godfather Movie

The Godfather - one of the greatest films of all time has many untold stories. Hear from the real life "Carlo" in this sit down between Patrick Bet-David and Gianni Russo.

Louis Giovanni "Gianni" Russo is an American actor and singer. He is best known for his role as Carlo Rizzi in The Godfather.

Did a real life New York mafia don ever force a movie producer to give a starring role to an Italian actor like Vito Corleone did in the Godfather?

Richard Warner, Writer and researcher on organized crime.

You are very close, and it wasn’t a movie like “The Godfather” — it WAS “The Godfather.” While the movie was in production New York mob boss Joe Colombo — the boss of the Colombo crime family now headed by Carmine Persico Jr. (who is in prison) — went to the set with a small crew telling Francis Coppola and producer Albert Ruddy that they couldn’t use the word “Mafia” in the film because he considered it demeaning to Italians and Italian-Americans. At the time Colombo was a Mafia boss he was also the president of the Italian-American Civil Rights League. So Coppola and Ruddy agreed to drop “Mafia” and “Cosa Nostra” from the film, and they also acquired Lenny Montana, an enforcer for the Colombo Family, to play Luca Brasi. Yes, Luca Brasi was a real mobster. Louis Giovanni “Gianni” Russo, who played Carlo Rizzi, the husband of Connie Corleone, was connected to the Gambino Family (so he claims). Coppola and Ruddy were then not only given permission to film around Little Italy, but they were shown around and given the royal treatment. In the end, the film turned out better and more authentic than expected.

Here is a photo of Al Pacino and Al Lettieri with Genovese caporegime Pasquale Eboli:

Some of the Actors got their roles due to their connections with certain crime families.

I always thought it was sort of mean to stigmatize half of foreign countries in power plays.

I think that today Mafia has changed and they have legalized their businesses.

At least they don't kill people anymore.

My friend and I wonder why that shooting in Las Vegas happened? Was the mob involved? Wouldn't it deter business?

Other material I've come across maintain they still operate the same way albeit under a disguise of legitimacy.

Yes,but people don't get killed anymore.

Regardless legitimacy,the Feds are in charge...

Still the mutual agreements between the authorities and Mafia brings peace and profits for the local and federal budget:)

No doubt about that the ties run deeply within politics.

Politicians by a rule do not go after particular people.
