THE GODFATHER's Opening Shot Repeated in John Milius' DILLINGER (1973)(video)

The famous opening shot in Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather" (1972) a slow, extended zoom out from a tight closeup of Bonasera (Salvatore Corsitto).

The introductory shot of Cloris Leachman in American Zoetrope alumnus John Milius' "Dillinger" (1973) seems to use it as a template.

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