Later this month, the estate of Robert Evans, super producer and "kid who stayed in the picture" will go on sale. Some of the items have arrived online. There's a painting from Impressionist Pierre-August Renoir and an item even more important to our taste... an original script for The Godfather with his casting ideas on it.
There are the names I can make out...can you help me with the others?
- Gene Hackman as Tom Hagen
- Charles Bronson as Sonny
- Ernest Borgnine as Clemenza
- John Saxon as Rocco
- Sterling Hayden as McCluskey
These are fascinating. It represents huge stars like Hackman and Bronson mixed with great character actors. I wish I could read all the ideas on here. I would buy it to examine it more closely, but the script has an estimated selling price of between £2,300-£3,800 or $3000-$5000.
Still pretty cool!
Can you make out any other names on the script? Let us know down in the comments.
