You’ve come here, on the day of The Godfather’s 45th anniversary, and we’re going to make you an offer you can’t refuse.
The Godfather made its theatrical debut in New York City on March 15, 1972 and…bada bing! Francis Ford Coppola’s mob masterpiece was an instant success. The highest grossing film of 1972, The Godfather went on to earn over $245M worldwide, spawned two sequels (The Godfather Part II and The Godfather Part III) and is often referred to as one of the greatest films of all time.
Now, you just scroll down the page and enjoy yourself, and, uh, forget about all this nonsense. We want you to leave it all to us.
Leave the gun, and take »
