Among the many of Francis Ford Copplas achievements in The Godfather is the way he characterized the individuals in the movie Each had an aspect about him or her that was special and memorable He accomplished this in many ways including but not limited to camera shots how the characters dressed how they talked and what they did The following is three example of how he characterized and depicted the roles in the movie Though one may not realize it at first or maybe even the second time they watch the movie but the most taboo and different character is Kay Adams Corleone We first meet her at the wedding of Connie Michaels sister and Carlo Rizzi She is fair skinned with honey-blonde hair as opposed to the other darker olive-skinned Italian guests Immediately this sets her apart from the others as an innocent a ray of sunshine in the middle of chaos She is dressed in a bright cheery red summer dress with a wide-brimmed hat looking much like a Sunday schoo l teacher would Her voice is very soft almost kitten like in contrast for example of Connies loud and brash voice Coppla uses these things to distinguish her from the members of the family Another scene in which we see her set apart from the rest is when she comes to the Corleone house after Michael has killed Sollozzo and McCluskey Tom Hagan rushes out to her and kind of turns her away from the house as if he is shielding her from whatever may be inside Only when she directly asks to use the phone to call a cab does he relent and reluctantly allow her entrance There are many other instances when we see her innocence and naivet when she accepts Michaels negative answer to Connies accusations of murder when she thinks that politicians would never do anything immoral and even when she accepts Michaels marriage proposal I never though
