The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York is portrayed while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on his crime syndicate stretching from Lake Tahoe, Nevada to pre-revolution 1958 Cuba.
The show I remember was called "The Super" starring Richard S. Castellano and, although your information doesn't show it, I could have sworn the son was played by Bruce (a/k/a Bruno) Kirby and that there was a wife and son in the picture, too. The best thing I remember is Catellano's character swatting the kid in the back of the head for doing or saying something stupid and Kirby's great comeback line: "Hey Pop!" Castellano was always one of my favorite (if not most favorite) character actor. He had the down-to-earth, guy next door, everyman quality that made you relate to him. He could make something as mundane as teaching the future Godfather to fry sausages something entertaining. He was a big bear of a guy with a heart of gold. He died much MUCH too young.
