Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • The film makes use of a variety of Italian words: - Paulie says "sfortunato", which in Italian means "What a unlucky guy!" (ironic), referring to Carlo (wedding scene). - Michael explains that Tom is a "consigliere," or a counselor; - Vito calls Johnny Fontane a "finocchio," an offensive term for a homosexual - Sonny refers to Paulie as a "stronzo," a term equivalent to "asshole" - Carlo and Connie both say "vaffanculo" during their fight, which means "fuck you" - Don Zaluchi calls the sale of drugs to children as an "infamita," or an infamy - and both the Dons Corleone use the word "pezzonovante," which means ".95 caliber," or more accurately meaning "big shot".
  • Frank Puglia was originally cast as Bonasera but had to back out due to illness.
  • Aram Avakian was originally hired as the film's editor but was fired after disagreements with Coppola.
  • Al Pacino wore a foam latex facial appliance that covered his entire left cheek and was made up with colors to match his skin tone and give the effect of bruising, to simulate the effect of having his jaw broken by Captain McCluskey.
