    Yes. That's him.


    Remember when DeNiro was saying he knows guys that pay him nothing?

    Someone ...... "the Greek"
    And ...... someone at something street..

    Were they predecessor to black hand?

    lol
    Your asking the correct person

    It's actually Genco, Vito's friend (later his consigliere), who says that Fanucci is Black Hand

    It's debateable whether Fanucci was actually "Black Hand"
    - As you mentioned Vito says "Joe the Greek on Tessimo Avenue, Frank Pennitanlo, and Tachinko Schrabo. They don't pay Fanucci."
    -Fanucci never has bodyguards, and is attacked by street punks
    -When Vito tries to negotiate, Fanucci says something along the lines of : "If you refuse, the police will come and you'll be arrested"
    -He accepts Vito lesser amount of money
    - There are no reprisals to his assassination
    None of the above would have occurred if Fanucci was Black Hand

    So I believe Fanucci is just the neighborhood bully and has no real connection to the Black Hand/La Cosa Nostra/Mafia.

    Yeah he was too fugazi to be black hand. Lol


    All makes perfect sense! Thank you!


    I know people piss and moan about godfather 3 .... but the story was great. Greater than parts 1 and 2.... problem was... well.... there were so many problems that the movie sucked.

    I still want a godfather 4. Same as part two with duel timelines.

    Timeline 1: Vincent, maybe during 80s drug rise/Wars, etc (especially being that Sonny wanted in on drugs and who better to live that life but his illegitimate son)

    Timeline 2: Sonny and his rise many years before they "went to the mattresses".

    Nice, very nice
    No problem, it's a movie seen ALOT.
    I figure sequels have 3% chance of success.
    So my level of anticipation for Godfather 4 would be similar to my excitement about a potential Gestapo reunion tour.
    I thought the story of Las Vegas from Mafia to corporate control would contain some interesting contract negotiations.
    But your idea promises more automatic weaponry than mine.

    Thank you! ;-)



    Anything is possible but ... "I dont see part 4 happening... Not while Coppola is alive"


    As far as "automatic weaponry"... I wouldn't care.... I think a great storytelling could take place... it's there. Just has to be done right.

    "Besides, if I ever need help shooting up a place who's a better gun than my Sonny(and Vincent). That's it."
    Both hot tempered, destructive characters. If the script fits (which it does) use it"
