Idea for show

Donnie

Love the podcast

You should interview Albert S. Ruddy

He produced The Godfather

But first watch the Paramount + limited new series called The Offer…… fascinating, unbelievable story, great acting. The Offer is about how The Godfather became a movie against all odds

Great series

Ruddy also produced The Offer

Thx

Jeff
