Similes on the Big Screen, Take 5
From “The Godfather” (1972):
She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her, like an animal. (Bonasera).
What's the matter with you. Is this how you turned out? A Hollywood finocchio that cries like a woman. (Don Corleone).
“The Godfather: Part II” (1974):
Those were the great old days, you know ... And we was like the Roman Empire ... The Corleone family was like the Roman Empire... (Frank Pentangeli)
“The Godfather: Part III” (1990):
Uncle Michael, listen … I know you're into banks and Wall Street, but everyone knows you're the final word, you're like the Supreme Court. (Vincent Mancini)
