I was in my trailer, working on Godfather II or III
in New York, and there was a knock on the door. The guy working with me
said that John Gotti would like to meet Mr. Coppola. And I said, "It's
not possible, I'm in the middle of something." There's an old wives'
tale about vampires — that you have to invite them in, but once they
cross the threshold, then they're in. But if you say you don't want to
meet them, then they can't come in. They can't know you.
