Michael Corleone says hello


Why did Rosato say that while strangling Frankie ? Michael had nothing to do with it.

reply

I always wondered about that myself. It could be that they planned for the hit to fail so Frankie would betray Michael, but I doubt that.

reply

They wanted Frankie to think Michael had double crossed him, hence the reason why he was so willing to testify against him later.

reply

It looks like they intended to kill him. And so it doesn't matter if they say it to him since he would be dead.

reply

It was clearly a mistake by the writers/director.

I'm pretty sure I remember the actor, Danny Aiello who played "Sal" in "Do the Right Thing", said on "Dinner for Five" that he improvised the line.

Because mafia types always need to say something witty before their victims meet their terrible ends. At least that's the way it works in every other mafia film.
