Francis Ford Coppola Movie Favorites


Reasons to watch Finian's Rainbow: It's Fred Astaire's last musical, Petula Clark sings, to see Francis Ford Coppola's early work as a director.


A movie masterpiece. The Godfather. This is a movie that gets a perfect 10 from everyone who sees it. The Godfather Part II became the first movie sequel to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and The Godfather Part III was a successful final chapter.


Francis Ford Coppola had two movies competing against each other for Best Picture. The Godfather Part II and The Conversation. Godfather won but the Conversation is reported to be Francis Ford Coppola's favorite movie. An intelligent and suspenseful story of a paranoid surveillance expert.


Apocalypse Now is a Vietnam war movie of great beauty with scenes that will never be forgotten. (We recommend the original version over the re-release APOCALYPSE NOW REDUX.)


The Outsiders is a heartbreaking book about teenagers in the sixties in Oklahoma that many high school kids are required to read. Francis Ford Coppola came up with a cast of unknowns who all went on to become stars.


We love the idea of a high school do over. In Peggy Sue Got Married we watch to see if Kathleen Turner will make the same choices all over again.


One you might have missed. . Ford, Chevrolet, Tucker? Francis Ford Coppola made a movie that tells us why we aren't driving cars named after Preston Tucker in Tucker: The Man and His Dream.


Francis Ford Coppola's take on the famous vampire story. Bram Stoker's Dracula follows closely to the classic novel and captures the romantic part of the story.
