Previously pinged around online circles in 2011 and now unearthed again by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, comes this page of Mario Puzo's famed novel "The Godfather," with Francis Ford Coppola's handwritten notes in the margins. Coppola directed 1972's adaptation of "The Godfather," and he turned Puzo's prose into one of the most acclaimed movies ever made. Below, check out both the page from Puzo's book -- the scene where Michael Corleone shoots Sollozzo and McCluskey -- and the filmed version of the same moment.
