On PBS yesterday was a biography film about Mario Puzo who was famous for writing the book "Godfather." It stated that his father, Antonio, abandoned the family and joined JWs. Eventually Mario's mother was contacted and she had to come put him in an insane asylum. Mario never heard about his father again. This would have been going on around 1930s I think. Quite a curious tidbit I thought.
Have you ever heard of this or did you see this on PBS?
