Written with the full co-operation of the director, this work charts the life and career of Francis Ford Coppola from his birth in 1939 to Italian-American parents, to his legal victory over Warner Bros in 1998 when he was awarded $60 million in damages. It provides an account of the genesis and making of all the films from "Patton" to "The Rainmaker" and beyond, via Godfather I, II and III, "Apocalypse Now" and "Dracula." The author has interviewed family members and numerous film colleagues, including George Lucas, James Caan, Fred Roos, Carroll Ballard, Mario Puzo, Kathleen Turner, Martin Sheen and Frederic Forrest.
