  1. Al Pacino is one of the greatest actors to be on the movie screen. I read somewhere that when the Godfather was being cast, the studio didn’t want Al. The Godfather without Pacino would never have worked.


    1. If you watch the screen tests it is really interesting to see how natural the dialogue was for him. The Godfather is one of my favorite films. Pacino was part of an amazing cast for all three of those movies.


      1. I agree with you about the screentests. Just wondering seiing as you have listed your favourite actors who are your favourite actresses?


      2. The top of my list includes Vivien Leigh, Grace Kelly, and Meryl Streep. There are a few others as well though. That’s my next project.


  2. Just saw Al Pacino on Broadway in Glengarry Glen Ross. As always, he was fantastic. After the show, he cordialy met the throngs of fans at the stage door. He took his time, posed for pictures etc. Mr. Pacino exemplifies a true Hollywood Star!
