All rival bodyguards

Prior to the attack on Vito Corleone's life, Virgil Sollozzo abducted Tom Hagen in order to have him talk Sonny Corleone into a mutually agreeable deal.

The old dinerEdit

Corleone caporegime Peter Clemenza eventually tracked Tom to Joe's Diner in Brooklyn, which he began to infiltrate along with Rocco Lampone and Aldo Trapani. Around this time Sollozzo discovered the attack on Corleone had failed and that the Don was only wounded. Therefore, he decided it was better to have Tom executed.

Fortunately, Clemenza and his men managed to rescue their consigliere, though Sollozzo managed to escape, and drove back to the Corleone mall in Long Beach.

Behind the scenesEdit

This event does not occur in any source other than The Godfather: The Don's Edition and The Godfather: Blackhand Edition, as in the film and book Tom managed to escape through negotiation.
