The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day sleeps wit da fishes!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
To give you an example of how fluid this daily column is I had a picture all picked out for today. It featured Francis Ford Coppola on the set of The Godfather and while not an incredibly brilliant picture it’s really neat for fans of the film because the still was taken during a key recognizable moment. I’ll say no more since I do plan on using that image in a future article.
Then a reader by the name of Jim Lowe sends me this better Godfather BTS image out of the blue and I slyly swap it with the one I was going to use.
If you haven’t seen The Godfather then shame on you. Say ten Hail Marys, get thee to the video store, update your Netflix queue and atone for your sins. Also, don’t look at this picture. It’s a big spoiler. Come back later. It’ll be linked at the bottom of every BTS column I post, just like the rest.
You gone? Good. Now it’s just us Godfather seers and we can talk about how sweet this picture is.
I gotta say I miss the days of fishing line bullet hits. I remember hearing that Tom Savini used something very similar to take off the top of the Helicopter Zombie’s head in Dawn of the Dead…
The idea is the filament line is pulled revealing an already made-up red hole underneath. When done fast enough it just look like bullet holes appear.
Now say goodbye to Jimmy "The Dream" Caan!
Here’s the pic:
Poor guy! I always liked Sonny!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
I’ll make amends for my disappointed Expendables review with tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic!
