Good for this sort of thing
19 August 2000 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching THE GODFATHER FAMILY. Although enjoyable for the behind the scenes footage and candid footage, I would have liked to have heard more from author Mario Puzo on how he came up with the idea for the original story. I was disappointed not to hear anything about the late John Cazale, who played Fredo in the first two films. For myself, his performance was the most enthralling of the series.
