Farewell Bruno Kirby

Originally uploaded by rhettrospective.

The man who played, amongst other roles, the young Clemenza in the flashback scenes of Godfather 2 has died.
Bruno Kirby (pictured on the far right) was 57 when he succumbed to Leukemia on August 14th 2006. In Godfather 2, he portrayed the young man who befriends a young Vito Corleone, and together they they break into houses and steal. He only appeared in the flashback sequences, but his performances was full of confidence and very convincing that he remains in your memory long after the film ends.

Other movie fans may also remember him as Billy Crystal's best friend in 'When Harry Met Sally'.
