No doubt, You have seen the great Godfather movies and probably remember Don Vito Corleone's  son Frederico (Fredo) Corleone played by the fine actor John Cazale.

Fredo is a fictional character, dreamed up by author Mario Puzo, who is weaker and less intelligent than his brothers and has little power or status in the crime family. His feelings of personal inadequacy and his inability to act effectively on his own behalf are character flaws leading to greater catastrophic consequences.

 

 

Of course, Puzo didn't dream Fredo up.  He, no doubt, fashioned him upon some poor loser he knew growing up.

 

 

It is catastrophic that truth is stranger than fiction-especially in these high charged days of politics, partisanship and power.

    Mario Puzo could never have dreamed this up. Or......If he sent it to his editor they would have rejected it as totally implausible. Truth in our case "trumps" fiction by a mile. Sadly for us in the real world - the Stakes are too high.

    As a writer, editor and publisher for now nearly 40 years, I have come to the Q.E.D. conclusion that EVERYTHING is based on a true story.

    Did you know that in every feature film in which John Cazale appeared received a nomination for best picture. Three of his films, The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II, and The Deer Hunter took home the top prize. The other two films Cazale made during his life, The Conversation and Dog Day Afternoon, both got nominations but didn't win.

    I have actually never seen any of the Godfather movies. Am I only person in the US who hasn't?
