Sam Kench of Brickwall Films paid a beautiful tribute to the late John Cazale, a great but vastly underrated actor who only acted in five films, each an Oscar winner. Cazale, who played lead roles in the films The Godfather, The Conversation, The Godfather Part II, Dog Day Afternoon, and The Deer Hunter, never gained any recognition outside the circle of actors with whom he worked. Sadly, Cazale passed away from lung cancer in 1978, before his last film, The Deer Hunter, was released.
A tribute to the late, great John Cazale, a wonderful actor who appeared in just five films throughout the course of his career: The Godfather, The Conversation, The Godfather Part II, Dog Day Afternoon, and The Deer Hunter.
Here’s the trailer for the 2010 documentary I Knew It Was You, which features interviews with Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, and other actors who knew and loved Cazale.
