The Best Version yet!
1 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

YES! I loved watching this version on TV several years ago. We got to see added footage of characters that we thought should have been taken care of like the body guard of Michael while he was in Italy. I always thought in the movie versions that should have been left in. My only complaint is I have hunted for it on VHS and DVD for years! I personally think it should be added to one's shelf. We have several versions of other movies. I bought the Godfather Trilogy blindly thinking it was this version and very upset when I discovered it wasn't. If I hadn't opened the package I could have gotten my money back.

Francis - Please consider this version. I know you'll make your money on it.
