Did You Know?

Trivia:
When Vito Corleone, Clemenza and Tessio are going to the gunsmith the owner's name is Augustino Coppola, later he introduces his son, Carmine Coppola, who demonstrates his flute playing abilities. This scene is a tribute to Francis Ford Coppola's father and grandfather. His father was the first flautist with the NBC symphony under Arturo Toscanini. His grandfather was an actual gunsmith. His father worked in the "shop" from time to time as a child. They both insist the event actually happened.See more »

All time favourite with excellent acting and a marvelous script tightly composed between Coppola and Puzo, 27 July 2003
Author: Vagus from sweden

This is my all time favourite suite of movies. The Godfather trilogy has bedazzled me time after time. The best thing is to see them all in a row with at the most one day between.

In part one Marlon Brando totally owns the screen and takes all the attention. And this isn't an easy task if you look at the casting! Al Pacino himself makes it worth while, as well as James Caan, Diane Keaton and Robert Duvall. Together they blend a perfect mix.

If you see the movies first and then read the original book by Mario Puzo, you will probably find that the characters in the movies perfectly suits the ones in the book. It's such a perfect match. Maybe this if because of the fact that Francis Ford Coppola worked together with Puzo on the movies.

I first saw the movies and then read the book, and even if I knew the movies very well I sat glued to the book from the first page to the last! And after I finished the book I felt a strong urge to see the movies again. This is because you get so much more information on all the characters in the book, so when you watch the movies again you will understand so much more! It's almost like seeing the trilogy for the first time again!

Enjoy!
