His big-screen acting career comprised just five movies - but they were five of the greatest films of his generation. Each earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination and teamed him with some of the most acclaimed actors and directors of the 20th century. Between 1972 and 1978, John Cazale co-starred in The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II, The Conversation, Dog Day Afternoon and The Deer Hunter. Collectively, the films hauled in no less than 40 Oscar nominations - including 14 for Cazale's co-stars - and hundreds of millions in box office receipts. Many of his contemporaries remember him as one of the brightest talents of his day, and he is venerated by some of today's most celebrated actors and filmmakers. Yet, just three decades after his promising career ended with his untimely death, actor John Cazale is largely unknown to the general public.

In December 1872, the merchant ship The Mary Celeste was found drifting deserted in the mid Atlantic Ocean. She was a ghost ship with no sign of her captain or the eight crew aboard, but mysteriously, her cargo of 1700 barrels of pure alcohol was intact in her hull. The mystery of her plight has stood for 135 years, baffling scientists, historians and mariners. Now a descendant of the ship's captain has a look at evidence that throws some fascinating new light on what really happened.
