    When I first watched this sequence from ‘The Underworld Story’ on you tube (during the mystery puzzle,) I wondered if ‘Godfather I’ found inspiration in it for their ‘shooting on the steps’ sequence. Very dramatic timing and scene framing in both pictures.

    I’ve enjoyed these follow up images. Thanks
