The secrets behind the production of cinema's greatest Mafia film have been revealed after the unsealing of The Godfather creator's personal vault. <br />
<br />
A never-before-seen archive of scripts, screenplays and storyboards relating to the epic 1972 movie belonged to the late Mario Puzo, who wrote the Godfather as a novel three years earlier.<br />
<br />
The documents contain Puzo's own annotations scrawled on early screenplay drafts for legendary director Francis Ford Coppola to consider, giving a glimpse into birth of some of cinema's most iconic lines and scenes. They are now being sold at auction for £300,000.
