* TransAtlanticEquivalent: In their aesthetics, methodologies, and even personalities, Coppola and Creator/WernerHerzog are bosom-buddies. Both favor flawed yet ambitious heroes in bold projects that balance [[ThePerfectionist meticulous planning]] with [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants off-the-cuff episodes]], with [[TroubledProduction attendant complications]]. They even had their own "Madness in the Jungle" [[Film/ApocalypseNow movie]], [[Film/AguirreTheWrathOfGod each]][[note]]What maks it even more interesting, is that ''Aguirre'''s visual style and narrative elements had a strong influence on Francis Ford Coppola when he was making ''Apocalypse Now''[[/note]].

In 1972, ''The Godfather'' was a critical and huge commercial success, and with that recognition, Coppola shot George Lucas to fame for producing his ''Film/AmericanGraffiti'' and ''Film/{{THX 1138}}''. In 1974 he directed ''Film/TheGodfather Part II'', and ''Film/TheConversation'' in the same year. The production of ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' was an absolute nightmare for everyone who worked on it, but the film is widely regarded today by film critics as a masterpiece.

Those were his most famous works. His career stumbled with ''One from the Heart'', an expensive flop which nearly bankrupted Zoetrope. Nonethless, Coppola remained prolific throughout TheEighties, releasing ''Film/PeggySueGotMarried'', featuring his nephew Creator/NicolasCage. He also directed ''Film/TheOutsiders'' and ''Literature/RumbleFish'', two "pet projects" of his, and ''Film/TuckerTheManAndHisDream'', largely because [[AuthorAppeal his father owned a Tucker]]. ''Film/TheOutsiders'' launched the careers of more than a few familiar actors now. In TheNineties he went more commercial with films such as ''Film/BramStokersDracula'', ''Film/{{Jack|1996}}'' and ''Film/TheRainmaker''.

His father Carmine Coppola was the first flautist for the UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} Symphony Orchestra, and won an Oscar scoring ''The Godfather Part II''. His daughter Creator/SofiaCoppola became an acclaimed director (despite an ill-fated acting gig in ''The Godfather Part III''). His sister Talia Shire was cast by him as Connie Corleone, and later became Franchise/{{Rocky}}'s wife Adrian (her son Jason Schwartzman is also an actor). His brother August is the father of NicolasCage. Along with the Hustons (Walter, John and Angelica) they are the only family to feature three generations of Oscar-winners.

* VitriolicBestBuds: He and George Lucas met in 1967 as two filmmakers in their 20s just starting to get a foothold in the business, and teamed up to create Zoetrope International Pictures, intended to be a place where young new filmmakers could do their stuff without any ExecutiveMeddling. Unfortunately, the disastrous performance of their first release, Lucas' ''THX 1138'', killed the idea and they've had a quite tempestuous relationship ever since, though Lucas still describes it as the closest relationship he's ever had with ''anyone''.
