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.
Looking at this short, it appeared as if the studio wasn't really sure if they had a hit on their hands...
This is a 'making of' film that was brought out just prior to the release of "The Godfather". It's odd in that this 'making of' featurette seems pretty ordinary--you really don't get much of an impression of the greatness of the subsequent feature film by watching "Behind the Scenes". Now I am not saying it's a bad short--but I have seen much better ones. In addition, I think the later 'making of' that was made for "The Godfather: Part III" was a better film--even though the feature was a bit of a disappointment to most.
The featurette consists of the usual--clips of the film, actors from it saying how wonderful they thing the film is, etc.. Overall, it's worth seeing but certainly not a necessary film to watch unless you are a die-hard fan of the series.
