Michael survives many misfortunes and Vito is introduced to a life of crime.

DON FRANCESCO:

(Sicilian)

He will be a man, and then he will

come for revenge.

As she pleads, the Widow moves closer to the Don, until she

has practically thrown herself to her knees before him.

WIDOW:

(Sicilian)

I beg you, Don Francesco, spare my

only son. He is all I have. In

the name of the Holy Spirit, I

swear he will never be a danger to

you...

Suddenly, she reaches under her skirt, where she has hidden

a kitchen knife.

WIDOW:

(continuing)

But I will kill you myself!

(she lunges at the

Mafia chieftain)

Vitone, go!

The boy runs as fast as he can out through the gates. Then

there is a lupara blast. He turns, and sees his Mother

flung a distance of five feet from the short range of the

terrible blast of the shotgun. Then he sees the men turn

their attention to him. One fires at him; but the boy is

quick, and disappears into a grove of olive trees.

EXT. STREETS OF CORLEONE - NIGHT

Two men roam the deserted streets of Corleone, carrying

lupare. Every so often, they stop, and one shouts in a

loud, almost singsong voice, like a fish peddler. Their

names are MOSCA and STROLLO.

MOSCA:

(Sicilian)

Our Friend promises misery to

anyone who harbors the boy Vito

Andolini.

(he turns and shouts

in the other direction)

Our Friend promises misery to

anyone who harbors the boy Vito

Andolini.

INT. A HOUSE - NIGHT

A family quietly eats their dinner. The father is the local

policeman, as indicated by his uniform jacket and gun,

hanging nearby.

STROLLO:

(Sicilian, O.S.)

Our Friend will be hard with any

family who gives help to Vito

Andolini.

One of the children looks up, about to speak. But the

father sternly indicates that nothing must be said. They go

on with their dinner.

EXT. THE STREETS OF CORLEONE - FULL VIEW - NIGHT

The men continue walking up and throughout the streets, far

in the distance.
