Tom Hagen went to his law office in the city on Thursday morning. He planned to catch up on his paper work so as to have everything cleared away for the meeting with Virgil Sollozzo on Friday. A meeting of such importance that he had asked the Don for a full evening of talk to prepare for the proposition they knew Sollozzo would offer the family business. Hagen wanted to have all little details cleared away so that he could go to that preparatory meeting with an unencumbered mind.

For the first time, Woltz succeeded in astounding Hagen. He found it inconceivable that a grown man of substance would let such trivialities affect his judgment in an affair of business, and one of such importance. In Hagen's world, the Corleones' world, the physical beauty, the sexual power of women, carried not the slightest weight in worldly matters. It was a private affair, except, of course, in matters of marriage and family disgrace. Hagen decided to make one last try.

这是第一次沃尔兹使得黑根震惊住了。他觉得这件事情无法理解:一个有这么多财富的人居然可以让这么一件微不足道的事情影响他的判断力,而且是在这样一件生意上面的事情。在黑根的世界里,

'I have one of those dignified corporate practices,' Hagen said dryly. 'I just handle this one account.' He rose. 'I won't take up any more of your time.' He held out his hand, Woltz shook it. Hagen took a few steps toward the door and turned to face Woltz again. 'I understand you have to deal with a lot of people who try to seem more important than they are. In my case the reverse is true. Why don't you check me out with our mutual friend? If you reconsider, call me at my hotel.' He paused. 'This may be sacrilege to you, but my client can do things for you that even Mr. Hoover might find out of his range.' He saw the movie producer's eyes narrowing. Woltz was finally getting the message. 'By the way, I admire your pictures very much,' Hagen said in the most fawning voice he could manage. 'I hope you can

Jack Woltz was a tall, powerfully built man with a heavy paunch almost concealed by his perfectly tailored suit. Hagen knew his history. At ten years of age Woltz had hustled empty beer kegs and pushcarts on the East Side. At twenty he helped his father sweat garment workers. At thirty he had left New York and moved West, invested in the nickelodeon and pioneered motion pictures. At forty-eight he had been the most powerful movie magnate in Hollywood, still rough-spoken, rapaciously amorous, a raging wolf ravaging helpless flocks of young starlets. At fifty he transformed himself. He took speech lessons, learned how to dress from an English valet and how to behave socially from an English butler. When his first wife died he married a world-famous and beautiful actress who didn't like acting. N

In the most natural way, without a word being spoken or the matter discussed in any fashion, Don Corleone had permitted the boy to stay in his household. Don Corleone himself took the boy to a special doctor and had his eye infection cured. He sent him to college and law school. In all this the Don acted not as a father but rather as a guardian. There was no show of affection but oddly enough the Don treated Hagen more courteously than his own sons, did not impose a parental will upon him. It was the boy's decision to go to law school after college. He had heard Don Corleone say once, 'A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns.' Meanwhile, much to the annoyance of their father, Sonny and Freddie insisted on going into the family business after graduation from high

The hotel clerk looked at Clemenza coldly. Clemenza rolled the little green spitball he was holding in his hand across to the clerk, who picked it up and immediately said, 'Mr. and Mrs. Michael Corleone.'

The dying man raised his fevered eyes gratefully to the Don. He let the young men clasp his bony hand in their fleshy ones. His wife and daughters ranged themselves along his bed, kissing his cheek, taking his other hand in turn.

这个垂死的人睁开激动的眼睛,感激地看着唐·科里昂。他让那些年轻人把自己瘦骨嶙峋的手握在他们那丰满的手中。他的妻女在他的床边排成一排,亲吻着他的脸颊,轮流握着他的手。

Johnny apologized nervously. 'Godfather, the man who runs it is a real .90 caliber pezzonovante. You can't budge him, not even with money. He has big connections. And he hates me. I just don't know how you can swing it.'

约翰尼紧张地道歉,“教父,这个家伙是个真正的 90毫米口径的硬家伙。你没办法打他,用钱也不行。他的背景很深。而且他恨我。我只是不知道你会怎么来解决。”

The Don spoke with affectiona

When Johnny finished singing and vanished into the house with Don Corleone, Kay said archly to Michael, 'Don't tell me a big movie star like Johnny Fontane has to ask your father for a favor?'

当约翰尼唱完,跟着唐·科里昂到房间里面去了之后,凯狡猾地对这迈克尔说,“不要告诉我像方亭这么大牌的明星都要你父亲来帮忙?”

The Don said impatiently, 'For what? I didn't answer before the wedding because on an important day like that there should be no cloud, not even in the distance. Also I wanted to know beforehand what he wanted to talk about. We know now. What he will propose is an infamita.'

老爷子不耐烦地说,“为什么?我不想在婚礼之前给出答案就是不想在这么重要的日子里面有麻烦,不管那个麻烦离得多远。我还要知道他到底想要谈论什么事情。我现在知道了。他承诺的事情是间不可能的。”
