“I cried once… from this eye here.
It was when they told me that I had to
kiss Barbara Streisand on camera.
I still have nightmares.”

James Caan
Actor, elf dad, Corleone.
March 26, 1940 – July 6, 2022.
Aged 82 years.

Most recognized for: With roles in too many great films to list, we’ll just focus on one: The Godfather. Oh Sonny… you lecherous hothead. How could you fall for that little farce Carlo played with Rocky Balboa’s wife? I mean your mouthy sister… whatever. But it wasn’t an ill-fated tollbooth stop that got ol’ Santino this time. Though I’m sure the Caans know the cause, they’re keeping it personal, not business… drawing a collective rebuke from the celebrity dead pool world.
