    The Godfather Part II, 1974
    A working script for The Godfather Part II which belonged to Francesca De Sapio who played the Young Mama Corleone in the film. The actresses' handwritten name appears on the top right corner of the title page of the script. Interestingly, the script shows a number of annotations in Italian, in particular the famous scene in which Mama Corleone asks Vito to help a friend who is having trouble with her landlord. The script is in English, with handwritten translations in Italian which is how it was eventually presented in the film.
