After winning five Emmys for Outstanding Single Program – Drama or Comedy, The Roommates was the most-watched TV movie of all time with a 32.9 rating/48 share at the time of its release.
Brian’s Song screenwriter William Blinn told the Television Academy Foundation in 2011: “Jimmy’s Jimmy. He always had a cockiness and confidence. Very competitive. Edgy, in the best sense of the word. But he’s a guy with all the pluses and minuses you can have.” Sonny Corleone, the eldest son of Don Corleone (Marlon Brando) in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather, was Caan’s most memorable portrayal.
Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel became the inspiration for this Academy Award-winning picture, which has gone on to become a classic. Additionally, the onscreen death of Caan in a hail of gunshots is among cinema’s most refined. For more such updates do follow us only on Venturejolt.com
