"Mario Puzo. Hollywood, CA, 1970. Writing the screenplay for The Godfather at Paramount Studios. Puzo was a very gregarious guy, and he talked about himself in the third person. They asked him who should write the screenplay for The Godfather and he said, 'Only one guy can write the screenplay -- and that's Mario Puzo!' We went to Vegas on the gambler's package and stayed in the Bugsy Siegel suite. We're sitting in a restaurant and a waiter delivers a round of drinks. The waiter and Mario have a small conversation, and he nods to a guy sitting at the bar. Who bought our drinks, I ask. Mario says 'That guy's with the mob. They love me.'" - Bob Peterson
