Trivia

Earlier drafts of the script included the character of Rocco Lampone showing that he survived his shooting at the end of The Godfather: Part II (1974). See more »

Goofs

The scenes where Michael advises his daughter Mary against seeing Vincent, and the one where he gives Anthony the car drawing seem to have been shot in sequence. That is noticeable because Anthony is wearing the same clothes and in the first scene (with Mary) Anthony has the car drawing in his hand. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Michael Corleone: [voiceover] My dear children: It is now better than several years since I moved to New York, and I haven't seen you as much as I would like to. I hope you will come to the ceremony of papal honors given for my charitable work. The only wealth in this world is children; more than all the money, power on earth, you are my treasure.

Underrated
26 December 1998 | by (Delaware) – See all my reviews

Godfather III is generally underrated because because it is more intellectual, subtle, and psychological than the first two. There's lots more Italian language, operatic venues, references to subtleties like the P2 masonic lodge, and there is the inner revelation of Michael Corleone's soul. Pacino should have won an Oscar for his performance. The movie would be a good staging point for a Godfather IV, with "Vincenzo Corleone" and Connie Corleone running things, while developing further the relationship between Michael, and his wife and son.
