In a list of the worst things you could possibly wake up next to in the morning, a severed horse’s head would probably feature highly.
Roman Coppola’s memory of one of the most well-known scenes in movie history is vivid. Unsurprising given he was in the room during the filming of the rude awakening. He and his sister Sophia accompanied their director father, Ford Coppola, on the set of The Godfather (1972) until it wrapped, each walking away from the experience having played their own tiny cameo roles in the film.
The Godfather went on to win three Oscars, including best picture. With such pedigree, it seems only natural that both Coppola and his sister have forged successful careers in film.
