Coen brothers

Joel and Ethan Coen, of Jewish heritage,[2] grew up in a Jewish community in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis.[3] Their father, Edward, was an economist at the University of Minnesota, and their mother, Rena, an art historian at St. Cloud State University. HP Pavilion dv2-1110er Battery

 

When they were children, Joel saved money from mowing lawns to buy a Vivitar Super 8 camera. Together, the brothers remade movies they saw on television with a neighborhood kid, Mark Zimering ("Zeimers"),[citation needed] as the star. Their first attempt was a romp titled, Henry Kissinger, Man on the Go. Cornel Wilde's The Naked Prey (1966) became their Zeimers in Zambia,[4] which also featured Ethan as a native with a spear. HP Pavilion dv2-1110es Battery

The brothers' Jewish upbringing was seldom related to their films' subjects or stories, with some exceptions, such as A Serious Man (2009), translated into Hebrew as "The Good Jew." Joel notes that "in regards to whether our background influences our film making... who knows? We don't think about it... There's no doubt that our Jewish heritage affects how we see things."[2] HP Pavilion dv2-1110et Battery

EDUCATION

The brothers graduated from St. Louis Park High School in 1973 and 1976. They both also graduated from Bard College at Simon's Rock in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.[3] Joel then spent four years in the undergraduate film program at New York University where he made a 30-minute thesis film called SoundingsHP Pavilion dv2-1110ez Battery

The film depicted a woman engaged in sex with her deaf boyfriend while verbally fantasizing about having sex with her boyfriend's best friend, who is listening in the next room. Ethan went on to Princeton University and earned an undergraduate degree in philosophy in 1979.[3] His senior thesis was a 41-page essay, "Two Views of Wittgenstein's Later Philosophy".HP Pavilion dv2-1110us Battery

PERSONAL LIVES

Joel has been married to actress Frances McDormand since 1984. They adopted a son from Paraguay, named Pedro McDormand Coen (Frances and all her siblings were adopted). McDormand has acted in six of the Coen Brothers' films, including a minor appearance in Miller's Crossing, a supporting role in Raising Arizona, lead roles in Blood Simple and The Man Who Wasn't There, her Academy Award winning role in Fargo, and her latest starring role in Burn After Reading. She also did a voice-over in Barton FinkHP Pavilion dv2-1111ax Battery

Ethan is married to film editor Tricia Cooke, and they have two children: daughter Dusty and son Buster.[5]

Both couples live in New York City.[6] HP Pavilion dv2-1112au Battery

 

THE 1980S

After graduating from NYU, Joel worked as a production assistant on a variety of industrial films and music videos. He developed a talent for film editing and met Sam Raimi, who was looking for an assistant editor on his first feature film The Evil Dead (1981). HP Pavilion dv2-1113ax Battery

 

In 1984, the brothers wrote and directed Blood Simple, their first film together. Set in Texas, the film tells the tale of a shifty, sleazy bar owner who hires a private detective to kill his wife and her lover. The film contains elements that point to their future direction: HP Pavilion dv2-1115ea Battery

distinctive homages to genre movies (in this case noir and horror), plot twists layered over a simple story, a dark humor and mise en scene. The film starred Frances McDormand, who would go on to feature in many of the Coen brothers' films (and marry Joel). Upon release the film received much praise and won awards for Joel's direction at both theSundance and Independent Spirit awards. HP Pavilion dv2-1115ee Battery

 

Their next project was 1985's Crimewave, directed by Sam Raimi. The film was written by the Coens and Raimi. Joel and Raimi also made cameo appearances in Spies Like UsHP Pavilion dv2-1116ax Battery

 

The next film by the brothers was the 1987 hit Raising Arizona, the story of an unlikely married couple: ex-convict H.I. (Nicolas Cage) and police officer Ed (Holly Hunter), who long for a baby but are unable to conceive. HP Pavilion dv2-1117ee Battery

When a local furniture tycoon (Trey Wilson) appears on television with his newly born quintuplets and jokes that they "are more than we can handle," H.I. steals one of the quintuplets to bring up as their own. The film featured Frances McDormand, John Goodman, William Forsythe, Sam McMurray, andRandall "Tex" Cobb. HP Pavilion dv2-1118ax Battery

 

THE 1990S

Miller's Crossing, released in 1990, starred Albert Finney, Gabriel Byrne, and John Turturro. The film is about feuding gangsters in the Prohibition era. HP Pavilion dv2-1119ax Battery

The following year, they made Barton Fink; set in 1941, a New York playwright (the eponymous Barton Fink played by John Turturro) moves to Los Angeles to write a B-movie. He settles down in his hotel room to commence writing, but suffers writer's block until he is invaded by the man (John Goodman) next door. HP Pavilion dv2-1120ax Battery

Barton Fink was a critical success, earning Oscar nominations and winning three major awards at 1991 Cannes Film Festival, including the Palme d'Or.[7] It was their first film with cinematographer Roger Deakins, a key collaborator for the next 15 years. HP Pavilion dv2-1120br Battery

In 1994, The Hudsucker Proxy (co-written with Raimi) was released; the Board of a large Corporation attempt to sabotage its share price by appointing a no-hoper as boss but their plan backfires when he invents the hula -hoop. HP Pavilion dv2-1120ed Battery

The brothers returned to a more familiar theme in 1996 with the crime thriller Fargo, set in their home state of Minnesota (Fargo, North Dakota appears in only a couple of early scenes). Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), who has serious financial problems, has his wife kidnapped so that his wealthy father-in-law will pay the ransom. HP Pavilion dv2-1120ef Battery

His plan goes wrong when the kidnappers deviate from the plan and local cop Marge Gunderson (McDormand) starts to investigate. A critical and commercial success, with particular praise for its dialogue and McDormand's performance, the film received several awards including aBAFTA award and Cannes award for direction and two Oscars, one for Best Original Screenplay and a Best Actress Oscar for McDormand. HP Pavilion dv2-1120eg Battery

In the Coens' next film The Big Lebowski, which was released in 1998, "The Dude" (Jeff Bridges), a Los Angeles slacker, is used as an unwitting pawn in a fake kidnapping plot with his bowling buddies (Steve Buscemi and John Goodman). Well received by critics,[8]it is now regarded as a classic cult film.[9] HP Pavilion dv2-1121ax Battery

THE 2000S

The Coen brothers' next film O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) was another critical and commercial success. The title was borrowed from the 1941 Preston Sturges filmSullivan's Travels, whose lead character, movie director John Sullivan, had planned to make a film with that title.[10] HP Pavilion dv2-1122ax Battery

Based loosely on Homer's Odyssey (complete with a cyclops, sirens, et al.) the story is set in Mississippi in the 1930s and follows a trio of escaped convicts who, after absconding from a chain gang, journey home in an attempt to recover the loot from a bank heist that the leader has buried. But they have no clear perception of where they are going. HP Pavilion dv2-1123ax Battery

The film also highlighted the comic abilities of George Clooney who starred as the oddball lead character Ulysses Everett McGill (assisted by his sidekicks, played by Tim Blake Nelson and John Turturro). The film's bluegrass and old time soundtrack, HP Pavilion dv2-1124ax Battery

offbeat humor and noted cinematography, made it a critical and commercial hit. The soundtrack CD became even more successful than the film, spawning a concert and a concert DVD of its own (Down from the Mountain) that coincided with a resurgence in interest in American folk music. HP Pavilion dv2-1125ax Battery

 

The Coen brothers produced another noirish thriller in 2001, The Man Who Wasn't There. Set in late 1940s California, a laconic chain-smoking barber (played by Billy Bob Thornton) discovers a way of blackmailing his wife's lover and using the proceeds to invest in a dry-cleaning business. HP Pavilion dv2-1125ee Battery

The film's twists and turns and dark humor were typical of Coen films, but here the slow pace, its dead-end roads look meant that the film was more for enthusiasts than casual audiences. HP Pavilion dv2-1126ax Battery

 

Intolerable Cruelty, released in 2003, starred George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones; it was a throwback to the romantic comedies of the 1940s with a story focused on Miles Massey, a hot-shot divorce lawyer, and a beautiful divorcee whom Massey had managed to prevent from receiving any money in her divorce. HP Pavilion dv2-1127ea Battery

She vows to get even with him while, at the same time, he becomes smitten with her. Intolerable Cruelty divided the critics; some applauded the romantic screwball comedy elements, while others wondered why the Coens would wish to subject audiences to their take on this particular genre. HP Pavilion dv2-1130eb Battery

 

In 2004, the Coen brothers made The Ladykillers, a remake of the Ealing Studios classic; a professor, played by Tom Hanks, assembles a team to rob a casino. They rent a room in an elderly woman's house to plan the heist. When the woman discovers the plot, however, HP Pavilion dv2-1130es Battery

the gang decides to murder her to ensure her silence. The Coens received some of the most lukewarm reviews of their career in response to this movie; much criticism centered on the idea that a relatively faithful reworking of an existing classic, in contrast to the broader genre homages that made up the bulk of the brothers' prior work, did not provide the creative latitude they needed to place their distinctive stamp on the work. HP Pavilion dv2-1131ax Battery

 

No Country for Old Men, released in November 2007, closely follows the 2005 novel byCormac McCarthy. Vietnam veteran Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), living on the Texas/Mexico border, stumbles upon, and decides to take, two million dollars in drug money. HP Pavilion dv2-1132ax Battery

He then has to go on the run to avoid those looking to recover the money, including sociopathic killer Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) who confounds both Llewelyn and local sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones). This plotline is a return to noir themes but in some respects it was a notable departure for the Coens; HP Pavilion dv2-1133ax Battery

notably, with the exception ofStephen Root, none of the stable of regular Coen actors appears in the film. No Country has received nearly universal critical praise, garnering a 95% "Fresh" rating at Rotten Tomatoes.[11] The film won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, HP Pavilion dv2-1134ax Battery

Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay, all of which were received by the Coens, as well as Best Supporting Actor received by Bardem. (The Coens, as "Roderick Jaynes", were also nominated for Best Editor, but lost.) It was the first time since 1961 (Jerome Robbins andRobert Wise for West Side Story) that two directors had received the honor of Best Director at the same time. HP Pavilion dv2-1134nr Battery

 

In January 2008, Ethan Coen's play Almost An Evening premiered Off-Broadway at theAtlantic Theater Company Stage 2 and opened to mostly enthusiastic reviews. The initial run closed on February 10, 2008 but the same production was moved to a new theatre for a commercial Off-Broadway run. HP Pavilion dv2-1136ax Battery

The commercial run began in March 2008, and ran until June 1, 2008 at the Bleecker Street Theatre in New York City, produced by The Atlantic Theater Company[12] and Art Meets Commerce.[13] In May 2009, the Atlantic Theater Company produced Coen's "Offices", as part of their mainstage season at the Linda Gross Theater. HP Pavilion dv2-1137ax Battery

 

Burn After Reading, a comedy starring Brad Pitt and George Clooney was released September 12, 2008; it portrays a collision course between a gym, spies and internet dating. Despite being released to mixed reviews, it debuted at number one in North America. HP Pavilion dv2-1140ed Battery

 

In 2009, they directed a television commercial for the Reality Coalition entitled "Air Freshener".[14]

A Serious Man was released on October 2, 2009. It has been described as a "gentle but dark" period comedy (set in 1967) with a low budget.[15] The film is based loosely on the Book of Job[citation needed] and the Coen brothers' own childhoods in a Jewish academic family in the largely Jewish suburb of St Louis Park, Minnesota.[15] HP Pavilion dv2-1140es Battery

Other filming took place in late summer 2008 in some neighborhoods of Roseville and Bloomington, Minnesota, atNormandale Community College, and at St. Olaf College. The movie went on to be nominated for the Oscars for Best Picture as well as Best Original Screenplay. HP Pavilion dv2-1140en Battery

 

UPCOMING, PLANNED FILMS AND UNCOMPLETED PROJECTS

The Coens hoped to film James Dickey's novel To the White Sea.[18] They were due to start production in 2002, with Jeremy Thomas producing and Brad Pitt in the lead role, but it was canceled when the Coens felt that the budget offered was not enough to successfully produce the film. HP Pavilion dv2-1140eo Battery

 

A project which has been mooted for several years is Hail Caesar, the third of the so called Numskull trilogy, a comedy starring George Clooney as a matinee idol making a biblical epic. However in an interview for the Los Angeles Times in February 2008, the Coens said that it did not exist as a script but only as an idea.[19] HP Pavilion dv2-1144ca Battery

 

It has been announced that the Coen brothers will write and direct an adaptation of Michael Chabon's novel, The Yiddish Policemen's Union. They will produce the film with Scott Rudin for Columbia Pictures.[20] HP Pavilion dv2-1160ed Battery

 

In a 1998 interview with Alex Simon for Venice magazine, the Coens discussed a project called The Contemplations which would be an anthology of short films based on stories in a leatherbound book from a 'dusty old library'.[21] HP Pavilion dv2-1199us Battery

 

As well as their own projects, they have involvement in two other productions. One isSuburbicon, a comedy starring and directed by George Clooney. It will be written and produced by the Coens.[22] In addition they have provided the screenplay for a remake of the 1966 film Gambit, due to star Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz.[23] Gambit began filming in London in May 2011.[24] HP Pavilion dv3-1000 Series Battery

 

Joel stated that "a Cold War comedy called 62 Skidoo is one I'd like to do someday".[25]

The Coen brothers have stated that they are interested in making a sequel to Barton Finkcalled Old Fink, which would take place in the 1960s, around the same time period as A Serious Man. The brothers have stated that they have had talks with John Turturro in reprising his role as Fink, but they were waiting "until he was actually old enough to play the part".[26]HP Pavilion dv3-1001TX Battery

Turturro has also stated that he would be interested in making a spinoff of The Big Lebowski about his character, Jesus, but the Coens have not publicly confirmed the likelihood of this project going forward.[27] HP Pavilion dv3-1051xx Battery

 

The Coens are working on a script based on the 1960s folk music scene in New York City's Greenwich Village, specifically on the life of Dave Van Ronk. The film will be based on Van Ronk's memoir, The Mayor of MacDougal Street.[28] HP Pavilion dv3-1075ca Battery

Entitled Inside Llewyn Davis, the film will be backed by USA's The Weinstein Company,[29] will feature Justin Timberlake, and distributed by Paramount Pictures in USA and Canada only and The Weinstein Company in the non-USA and United Kingdom only.[30] HP Pavilion dv3-1073cl Battery

 

They are also reportedly working on their first television project called Harve Karbo about a quirky Los Angeles private eye for Imagine Television.[31] HP Pavilion dv3-1075us Battery

 

Directing distinctions

In the past, Joel and Ethan Coen have had to split the producer and director credits due toguild rules that disallowed co-sharing of the director credit to prevent rights and ownership issues. The only exception to this rule is if the co-directors are an "established duo". Now that they are able to share the director credit (as an established duo), HP Pavilion dv3-1077ca Battery

the Coen brothers have become only the third duo to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director. The first two pairs to achieve this were Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins (who won forWest Side Story in 1961) and Warren Beatty and Buck Henry (who were nominated forHeaven Can Wait in 1978). HP Pavilion dv3z-1000 Battery

 

With eight Academy Award nominations for No Country for Old Men including Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, and Film Editing (Roderick Jaynes), the Coen Brothers have tied the record for the most nominations by a single nominee (counting an "established duo" as one nominee) for the same film. HP Pavilion dv3-2000 Battery

Orson Welles set the record in 1941 with Citizen Kane being nominated for Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Screenplay (withHerman J. Mankiewicz). Warren Beatty tied Welles' record when Beatty was nominated for Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Screenplay for Reds in 1981. Alan Menken also then achieved the same feat when he was nominated for Best Score and triple-nominated forBest Song for Beauty and the Beast in 1991. HP Pavilion dv3-2001tu Battery

 

Collaborators

The Coen brothers often cast certain actors more than once in their films. They have worked twice with Jeff Bridges and at least three times with George Clooney, Holly Hunter(who also did an uncredited voice in Blood Simple), Frances McDormand (who also had an uncredited role in Miller's Crossing and did an uncredited voice in Barton Fink), John Turturro, Steve Buscemi, Josh Brolin, Michael Badalucco, John Goodman, Richard Jenkins, Stephen Root, and Jon Polito.HP Pavilion dv3-2001TX Battery

 

The Coens used cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld through Miller's Crossing until Sonnenfeld left to pursue his own directing career, which includes such films as The Addams FamilyGet Shorty, and Men in Black. Roger A. Deakins has been the Coen brothers' cinematographer for all their films since except Burn After Reading, on which they employed Emmanuel Lubezki.[33] HP Pavilion dv3-2001xx Battery

Sam Raimi also helped write The Hudsucker Proxy, which the Coen brothers directed; and the Coen brothers helped write Crimewave, which Raimi directed. Raimi took tips about filming A Simple Plan from the Coen brothers, who had recently finished Fargo (both films are set in blindingly white snow, HP Pavilion dv3-2002tu Battery

which reflects a lot of light and can make metering for a correct exposure tricky). Raimi has cameos in Miller's Crossing and The Hudsucker Proxy. They met when Joel Coen was hired as one of the editors of The Evil Dead(mentioned on the movies' commentary). HP Pavilion dv3-2002tx Battery

 

William Preston Robertson is an old friend of the Coens who helped them with re-shoots on Blood Simple and provided the voice of the radio evangelist. He is listed in the credits as the "Rev. William Preston Robertson". He has provided vocal talents on most of the Coens' films up to and including The Big Lebowski. He is also credited in Sam Raimi's Evil Dead II and he wrote The Making of The Big Lebowski with Tricia Cooke. HP Pavilion dv3-2003tu Battery

 

All of their films aside from 1985's Crimewave have been scored by Carter Burwell, although T-Bone Burnett produced much of the traditional music in O Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Ladykillers and was also in charge of archive music for The Big Lebowski. Skip Lievsay handles the post-production sound work for all of their films. HP Pavilion dv3-2003tx Battery

 

All of their films have been edited by "Roderick Jaynes". Jaynes is, however, an alias to refer collectively to the two Coen brothers. Francis Ford Coppola HP Pavilion dv3-2004tu Battery

 

Francis Ford Coppola ( /ˈkoʊpələ/ KOH-pə-lə; born April 7, 1939)[1] is an American film director, producer and screenwriter. He is widely acclaimed as one of Hollywood's most innovative and influential film directors.[1] He epitomized the group of filmmakers known as the New Hollywood, HP Pavilion dv3-2004tx Battery

that includes Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Robert Altman,Woody Allen, William Friedkin, Peter Bogdanovich, and Brian De Palma who emerged in the early 1970s with unconventional ideas that challenged contemporary film-making.[2][3] HP Pavilion dv3-2005ee Battery

 

He co-wrote the script for Patton (1970), which won an Academy Award for Original Screenplay. His directorial fame escalated with the release of The Godfather (1972), a film which revolutionized movie-making in the gangster genre, earning praise from critics and public alike. It won three Academy Awards, including his second, for Best Adapted Screenplay, and was instrumental in cementing his position as a prominent American film director. HP Pavilion dv3-2005tu Battery

 

Coppola followed it with a critically successful sequel, The Godfather Part II (1974), which became the first sequel to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The film was highly praised and won him three Academy Awards—for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Directorand Best Picture. The Conversation, which Coppola directed, produced and wrote, was released that same year, HP Pavilion dv3-2005tx Battery

winning the Palme d'Or at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival. He next directed Apocalypse Now (1979); notorious for its overlong and strenuous production, but critically acclaimed for its vivid and stark depiction of the Vietnam War, winning thePalme d'Or at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival. To this day, Coppola is one of only six filmmakers to win two Palme d'Or awards, and is the only filmmaker to win both in the same decade. HP Pavilion dv3-2006tu Battery

 

Early life

Coppola was born in Detroit, Michigan, to a family of Italian ancestry (his paternal grandparents were immigrants from Bernalda, Basilicata).[7] He received his middle name in honor of Henry Ford, as he was born at the Henry Ford Hospital.[8] HP Pavilion dv3-2006tx Battery

 His parents wereItalia (née Pennino) and Carmine Coppola, who was the first flautist for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. He was the second of three children (his older brother was August Coppola and younger sister is actress Talia Shire). Two years later, Carmine became the first flutist for the NBC Symphony Orchestra and the family moved to New York City, finding a home in Woodside, Queens, where Francis spent the remainder of his childhood. HP Pavilion dv3-2007ee Battery

Coppola had polio as a boy, leaving him bedridden for large periods of his childhood, and allowing him to indulge his imagination with homemade puppet theater productions. Reading A Streetcar Named Desire at age 15 was instrumental in developing his interest in theater.[9] HP Pavilion dv3-2007tu Battery

Eager to be involved in film-craft, he turned out 8mm features edited from home movies with such titles as The Rich Millionaire and The Lost Wallet.[10] As a child he was a mediocre student but was very much interested in technology and engineering; HP Pavilion dv3-2007tx Battery

so much, in fact, that his friends nicknamed him “Science”.[11] Initially he trained for a career in music and became so proficient on the tuba that he won a musical scholarship to the New York Military Academy.[10] After graduating from the Great Neck North High School,[2] he entered Hofstra University in 1955 majoring in theater arts. HP Pavilion dv3-2008tu Battery

There he won a play-writing scholarship, which furthered his interest in directing theater, though this wasn't approved by his father, who wanted him to study engineering.[12] However, after he chanced to see Sergei Eisenstein’s OctoberHP Pavilion dv3-2008tx Battery

which impressed him profoundly, particularly the quality of editing in the movie, Coppola decided that he would not go into theater but would opt for cinema.[12] Among his classmates were James Caan and Lainie Kazan.[2]He would later cast Caan in The Rain People and in The Godfather as Sonny Corleone. HP Pavilion dv3-2009tx Battery

After obtaining his bachelor's degree from Hofstra University, Coppola enrolled in theUniversity of California at Los Angeles, where he met Jim Morrison. Coppola would later use Morrison's well-known song "The End" in Apocalypse Now.[14] HP Pavilion dv3-2010el Battery

Very soon he enrolled in UCLA Film School for graduate work in film.[10] At UCLA, Coppola directed a short horror film called “The Two Christophers” inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "William Wilson". He also directed “Ayamonn the Terrible”, a film about a sculptor’s nightmares coming to life.[11] HP Pavilion dv3-2010et Battery

It was then he decided to experiment as a serious film director and ended up directing a softcore porn film Tonight for Sure in 1962.[2] The film failed to attract any attention. The company that hired Coppola to edit Tonight for Sure brought him back to re-cut a German film titled Mit Eva fing die Sünde an directed by Fritz Umgelter. HP Pavilion dv3-2010tx Battery

He added some new 3-D color footage and earned a writer’s and director’s credit for The Bellboy and the Playgirls, also a box-office failure. Coppola was hired as an assistant by Roger Corman.[15] His first job for Corman was to dub and re-edit a Russian science fiction filmNebo zovyot, which he turned into a sex-and-violence monster movie entitled Battle Beyond the Sun, released in 1962.[2][16] HP Pavilion dv3-2011tx Battery

Impressed by Coppola's perseverance and dedication, Corman hired him as dialogue director on Tower of London (1962), sound man for The Young Racers (1963) and associate producer of The Terror (1963).[13] HP Pavilion dv3-2012tx Battery

While on location in Ireland for The Young Racers in 1963, Corman, ever alert for an opportunity to produce a decent movie on a shoestring budget, persuaded Coppola to make a low-budget horror movie with funds left over from that movie.[13] HP Pavilion dv3-2013tx Battery

Coppola wrote a brief draft story idea in one night. It incorporated elements from Hitchcock's Psycho,[17]and it impressed Corman enough to give him the go-ahead. On a budget of $40,000 ($20,000 from Corman and $20,000 from another producer who wanted to buy the movie's English rights),[17] HP Pavilion dv3-2014tx Battery

Coppola directed in a period of just nine days, Dementia 13, his first feature from his own original screenplay. Somewhat superior to the run-of-the-mill exploitation films being turned out at that time, the film recouped its shoestring expenses and went on to become a minor cult film among horror buffs. It was on the sets ofDementia 13 that he met his future wife Eleanor Jessie Neil. HP Pavilion dv3-2015ee Battery

In 1965, Coppola won the annual Samuel Goldwyn Award for the best screenplay (Pilma, Pilma) written by a UCLA student.[10] This secured him a job as a scriptwriter with Seven Arts. In between, he co-wrote the scripts for This Property Is Condemned (1966) and Is Paris Burning? (1966). HP Pavilion dv3-2015tx Battery

However fame was still eluding him, and partly out of desperation, Coppola bought the rights to the David Benedictus novel You're a Big Boy Now and fused it with a story idea of his own, resulting in You're a Big Boy Now (1966). This was his UCLA thesis project that also received a theatrical release via Warner Bros..[2] This movie brought him some critical acclaim and eventually the Master of Fine Arts Degree.[13] HP Pavilion dv3-2016tx Battery
