Was involved in both movies that his father, Carmine Coppola
, and his daughter, Sofia Coppola
, won Oscars: he was the director of The Godfather: Part II

(2003), which won his daughter the Oscar for "Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen".

(1972), Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)).
