After directing ''The Rain People'' in 1969, Coppola co-wrote ''Patton'' (1970), which earned him the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay along with Edmund H. North. Coppola's reputation as a filmmaker was cemented with the release of ''The Godfather'' (1972), which revolutionized the gangster genre of filmmaking, receiving strong commercial and critical reception. ''The Godfather'' won three Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay (shared with Mario Puzo). ''The Godfather Part II'' (1974) became the first sequel to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Highly regarded by critics, the film earned Coppola two more Academy Awards, for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Director, making him the second director (after Billy Wilder) to win these three awards for the same film.

Also in 1974, he released the thriller ''The Conversation'', which received the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. His next film, the war epic ''Apocalypse Now'' (1979), which had a notoriously lengthy and strenuous production, was widely acclaimed for vividly depicting the Vietnam War. It also won the Palme d'Or, making Coppola one of only ten filmmakers to have won the award twice. Other notable films Coppola has released since the start of the 1980s include the dramas ''The Outsiders'' and ''Rumble Fish'' (both 1983), ''The Cotton Club'' (1984), ''Peggy Sue Got Married'' (1986), ''The Godfather Part III'' (1990), ''Bram Stoker's Dracula'' (1992) and ''The Rainmaker'' (1997).
