The Godfather' Author's Papers Sell At Auction For $625,000

A collection of Mario Puzo's rough drafts of The Godfather have been auctioned off for $625,000 (£435,200). The treasure trove was part of the late Puzo's literary archive, including partial movie scripts and letters to Marlon Brando, sold by bosses at Boston, Massachusetts auction house, RR Auction. The 45-box archive also featured the original script for Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather movie with the director's handwritten annotations. Online bidding began on 11 February 2016. The winning bidder asked to remain anonymous.

Some famous quotes from the movie-

"I don't trust society to protect us, I have no intention of placing my fate in the hands of men whose only qualification is that they managed to con a block of people to vote for them."

"Italians have a little joke, that the world is so hard a man must have two fathers to look after him, and that's why theyhave godfathers"

"Revenge is a dish that tastes best when served cold"
