ArenA III: Future of the Movies


                                         GAUNTLET ArenA EPISODE III:

In 1990, Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert conducted a special program of their television show called FUTURE OF THE MOVIES, with interviews with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Martin Scorsese about the future of Hollywood filmmaking.  Almost 25 years later, many of the topics and technology have come true.  Jumping back into the Gauntlet ArenA, five filmmakers look at the questions posted in 1990 and compare to the industry of 2014 and beyond.

008: Godfather vs. Godfather


"008:  Godfather vs. Godfather"

It was the offer heard around the world and over forty years later, it still cannot be denied.  The saga of Vito Corleone's immigration to America and the family and business he built has become cinema legend.  From the pages of Mario Puzo's novel through the screenplay, theatrical films and Chronological Saga recut for television, Francis Ford Coppola's vision of the family Corleone continues its influence on movies, pop culture, acting, filmmaking, music, editing and even The Sopranos.  How was the novel adapted?  What was left out?  What about those hours of deleted scenes, numerous aborted scripts for III and the ideas Puzo and Coppola complied for IV?  Popping the cork on a bottle of Coppola's finest, the Gauntlet dives back into the "vs." series with an epic look into all things Godfather.
