For The Godfather, "Italian-American college boy" isn't the best description. What would be better is saying "Italian-American war hero".

He went to college for sure. In fact, in the scene where Michael suggests that he should be the one to kill Sollozzo. Sonny makes fun of him by calling him a "nice college boy" I think the clue is fine.

OMG I tried EVERYTHING for The Natural!!! Legend, Hero, Model, Gifted, Talent, etc. etc. etc. I knew I had seen it, and said "What's that movie with Robert Redford and Glenn Close and whatnot, about the baseball legend guy?" And just could NOT think of it. I'm really beating myself up right now.

The clue for "The Godfather" totally threw me off. And it's my favorite movie of all time.
