He was an amazing athlete, good at motorcycles, good at playing every instrument, and had the ability to pick up anything and be good at it. 

And for him, his father being an actor was just something else he was good at. 

He was somebody who was really tough, handsome, and smart, and seeing him good at everything made him want to be good at stuff, he said.

The truth behind the success of Godfather

The classic film The Godfather, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, is a true masterpiece ever made in the history of cinema. 

When the film came out in 1972, a New York-based lawyer Mario Cuomo didn’t consider watching it, objecting to stereotyping Italian-Americans. 

He boycotts the movie for 41 years before finally deciding to see the movie. 

Larry King, during a conversation with James back in 2013, brought up the topic to discuss it. 

He said that he and Mario Cuomo did a seminar at Fordham University for law students where they showed The Godfather

King said Cuomo still hated the movie, although he appreciated technically. 

He hated it because of Italian stereotypes and the theory that Italians suffered as Americans from that movie. 

He also said that the movies glorify murder. 

When Larry King asked about his reaction to Cuomo’s statement, Caan said that the truth about the success of The Godfather has to do solely with Francis Coppola, and the reason he said that is that Coppola is not a Brooklyn Italian but a Mediterranean Italian. 

His father was a lead flutist for Toscanini, so they come from music and art and food and wine, and the kids were the same way. 

They didn’t know about any wise guys' kinds of stuff but therein lies the success because everything was done for the sake of the family, he explained. 

He said that 90 percent of his friends were Italian and that he never heard those things as they suffered as Americans from them.
