Phantom Bullethole in "THE GODFATHER" (1972) (video)


Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) must meet with Sollozzo and his bodyguard, crooked police captain McCluskey.

Michael plans to assassinate them both.

The location is an out-of-the-way Italian restaurant. Michael acquires a hidden gun in the bathroom.

He shoots Sollozzo, then McCluskey.

But look...after the first shot to the throat, there's already a bullethole in McCluskey's forehead.

That's because director Francis Ford Coppola decided to switch the order of the shots. Coppola must've figured that if we noticed it, we could live with it.

And I guess we did!

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material. Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
