R82 I'm second generation Polish. My family's name was changed from Czyczinski to King. The men at Ellis Island were either too busy or too ignorant to care about origins. They assigned names to immigrants the way animal adoption agencies assign names to dogs.

by Kayreply 8905/03/2020

But of course the proud Polacks at R86 never bothered to correct their name and change it back, the way thousands of air-headed feather wits and lesbians (I'm looking at YOU, Azure Sky, nee Sheila.) did on a whim.

R86 also absolutely misstates, being a self-victimizing cunt, what happened at Ellis Island. I'm a genealogist and the myth of "animal adopt agency" mistreatment is a lazy, uninformed pose adopted by such nasty shits. Where communication was impossible and records illegible, issues in name recognition were inevitable. Other than that, apart from the burden of large numbers of people involved, records show that the Ellis Island intake staff generally did an excellent job. Two branches of my own family came from parts of Poland and their challenging names made it through just fine.

Idiot. Trying to change the facts because of personal anecdote while never trying to correct the name. Meaning that family heritage meant little to her pack of immigrants - they were, after all, Kings in America.

We are the curtains blowing on Johnny Ola’s Havana balcony while Bussetta is strangling Ola. My American cousins, known as “drapes,” didn’t do their job at the Reno compound so that’s why all of this revenge, including the murder of Fredo, happened.

by Kayreply 9305/03/2020

To echo r90's point, I am also a genealogist who has a surname that was changed at Ellis Island, at least according to my great-aunt. Once I learned how to do the research 22 years ago, I learned that not only was my great-grandfather's surname (let's say it was BOIARDI) not changed at Ellis Island, he never changed it at all. His American naturalization papers carried BOIARDI as did his Social Security card, and eventually his death certificate. His nine children, two of whom were born in Europe and were listed with BOIARDI on the passenger list, all carried an English phonetic spelling of the surname (in this example, BOYARDEE). I think the surname change happened when the children were registered for school. My great-grandparents were illiterate, they could not verify registration information, and the school secretary or whomever probably just wrote down what she heard and the new name followed my grandfather and his siblings.

It is I, the real “solid gold” United Telegraph and Telephone Company telephone being passed around in 1958 by industry titans looking to bring unfettered corruption and laissez faire capitalism to Cuba.

Since the salivating moguls know I am just a false optic, they pretend I am heavy but in reality I’d weigh about 45 pounds if I was really “solid gold.” Michael and Hyman just toss me as if I’m light as a feather, since they know I’m just a lie and don’t care.

r183, Not only is Godfather 3 despised by most fans; some even consider one of the worst films of the decade.

by Kayreply 18405/10/2020

r183, Part III has major flaws, but overall, to me, it's not as bad as the consensus reviews and reactions.

In fact, the last 45 minutes or so- the Cavallaria Rusticana opera scenes- are beautifully filmed. They also have a dramatic tension to them that I found to be very entertaining.

That said the two major flaws are

1. the screenplay and plot are shaky. Some of the dialog is melodramatic and downright corny: Kay, in a pearls-clutching tone to Michael when he's justifying his actions: "backed by murder!" I almost laughed out loud in the theatre at that moment, it was so unintentionally funny.

SPOILER: And the plot of Michael becoming the good guy to save the Papacy is too much.

and 2. : Sophia Coppolla. It ain't her fault, it's Francis Coppalla's. 'Nuff said.

Still there is a very moving scene where Michael confesses to a priest; a priest who is to become the new Pope. I really was moved by it - Michael in a sobbing whisper- "I killed my mother's son".

by Kayreply 22105/13/2020

"I'm mob vengeance, the philosophy of "an eye for an eye." Ironically, many of my believers are Roman Catholics who pray to Jesus but don't practice what he preached."

I am forced to correct this often misattributed AND misinterpreted quote. First, Roman Catholicism has nothing to do with it. The phrase is from Leviticus in the OLD Testament, and has its roots in the Code of Hammurabi.

The "eye for an eye" phrase was actually meant to restrict compensation for injury, including economic or legal injury, so that the injured did not use the case to extract more than the injury warranted.

And, monetary payment was encouraged to settle most disputed under the same code, with the exception of murder.

Elsewhere in the OT (Deuteronomy), it is made clear that "vengeance", as opposed the justice clause in Leviticus, is the purview only of God, not of Man ("Vengeance is MINE, I shall repay, saith the Lord).

Sorry about veering off, but as an academic it makes me despair that so much has gone into public consciousness without the slightest awareness that 1) this doesn't belong to Roman Catholicism or any other Christian denomination, but comes straight out of the Hebrew bible by way of Hammurabi, and 2) wasn't meant as a full on excuse for violent bloodletting but rather to restrain exactly that. . .

For Heaven's sake, even Martin Luther King misused it, and he was a preacher.

It makes me want to bite.

"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, Vengeance is MINE, I shall repay, saith the Lord."

In other words, it isn't man's business to mete out fine justice, but God's. In plainer terms, you leave vengeance to ME.

It is neither "Christian" (i.e. from the NT), and it prohibits, not encourages, man to take justice/vengeance into his own hand.

R245 The Godfather wiki for Sollozo's character explains it: [quote]"He then went to the Corleone family to obtain money and protection from the police and courts. Vito Corleone refused, however, feeling that the drug business is bad for the neighborhoods. However, in the course of the meeting, Sonny Corleone admitted an interest, leading the Turk to think that if Vito died, Sonny would accept his deal."

At 3:50 in the video, Sonny shows his interest until Vito stops him. Later, (not in the video) Vito berates Sonny for showing his hand. Clemenza and Tom look each other at 3:54, betraying their own self-interest as well. You can clearly see Sollozo notice the entire exchange. It's all nonverbal communication, very effectively conveyed in the scene. Vito would never have been shot, the War of the 5 Families would never have happened, and Michael may have never been Don if Sonny wasn't such a dumbass in that moment.

Nino kept his promise to remain sober, and he tried to watch over Johnny. But the women of the party kept pulling Johnny Fontane into bedrooms for a little chat and Johnny kept getting drunker and drunker. Meanwhile the woman who had won the award for the best actress was suffering the same fate but loving it more and handling it better. Nino turned her down, the only man at the party to do so.

Finally somebody had a great idea. The public mating of the two winners, everybody else at the party to be spectators in the stands. The actress was stripped down and the other women started to undress Johnny Fontane. It was then that Nino, the only sober person there, grabbed the half-clothed Johnny and slung him over his shoulder and fought his way out of the house and to their car.
