Born Francis Ford Coppola on April 7, 1939, in Detroit, Michigan, he is one of America's most off-beat, dynamic and controversial filmmakers. From his early beginnings to date, Coppola witnessed both stunning triumphs and towering setbacks, before seeing his own resurrection starting the process all over again. He is best known among audiences primarily for his adaptation of Mario Puzo's book "The Godfather" turning it into one of the most critically acclaimed trilogies of all time that goes as follows: "The Godfather" (1972), "The Godfather, Part II" (1974) and "The Godfather, Part III" (1990). While he is also celebrated by his colleagues, particularly among the Young Turks – a group of filmmakers who emerged in the early 1970s, represented by George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma and William Friedkin. Other notable features that fetched him accolades and fan following include The Conversation (1974) and Apocalypse Now (1974), each earning him a Palme d'Or Award. One of only eight filmmakers to win two Palme d'Or awards, Coppola has won five Academy awards out fourteen nominations in total. Later on, he successfully translated his success from the 1970′s to the 1990′s directing Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), which turned out to be a blockbuster and won three Academy Awards. The last movie that he helmed in the decade was The Rainmaker (1997), an adaptation of the John Grisham book by the same name. Then he had a ten-year hiatus returning behind the camera with the 2007's Youth Without Youth, which was critically panned and another box office flop for the veteran director.
