This permanent A++/+ list mostly movie director who comes from a family of people in the business spent tens of thousands of dollars to try and scrub the internet of his connection to the convicted pedophile director.

Coppola and Victor Salva

Coppola and Victor Salva. Credited producer on the Jeepers Creepers movies; helped Salva get Clownhouse, the film Salva did his predations on, made in the first place. Common(ish) knowledge.

Probably Coppola, but he does not "come from" a "family of people" in the business." Yes he has "family" in the business because of him, but he does not come from nepotism. Language - so tricky.

@Spider, Let us just give thanks that the blind grammar is intelligible. ;)

Coppola is no saint. He cut his teeth with Corman and Russ Meyer so knows how to handle funny money in a movie laundromat situation. Recall his involvement in the Roy Radin/Cotton Club mishegas years ago. Sympathy for the Gangster should be the title of his autobiography.

Salva's the guy who is buddies with the leader of #metoo, right?

@Brayson - So true. I forgot. I Should count my blessings.

Spider Rico--not true yes, Carmine Coppola got movie work through his son, but he was employed by NBC TV well before Francis' career began...

Coppola's family lived in Detroit and father Carmine (a conductor and arranger) benefitted from Henry Ford's grants to the local music scene, hence "Ford" as a middle name for his son.

And I doubt that Coppola is in a position to spend tens of thousands of dollars to "scrub the internet", if there's such a thing, of his connections to Salva, as he's 79 (with little concern about the Internet) and broke. He would still be credited as the executive producer of the first two Jeepers Creepers movies, unless he manages to get every copy altered, in addition to IMDb.

Besides, on the first page Google results for "Coppola Victor Salva," there are links

- to a short video "Francis Ford Coppola supports pedophile director Victor Salva"
- to several articles such as "Paedophile horror director Victor Salva condemned for abuse jokes," or "The Convicted Hollywood Pedophile Who Won't Go Away," or "The Pedophile Director Embraced by Hollywood" or even "Victor Salva Loves Terrorizing Semi-Naked Youths"

So, that's not a really effective scrubbing.

Coppola had no financial acumen but doea have integrity. When due to mismanagement his film company by those running the financial end ran into trouble with the banks, he hired a heavy hitter to work things out and personally saw to it that every cent was paid back even if it meant he took some real crap directing jobs just for the fee.

I doubt you'd find any director in the business without a connection to one skeezy scum bucket or other.

I figured Coppola made good money from his wine company. That stuff's in every grocery in the country

Where I grew up having a family of people in The Business did not mean show business. So I read this differently
