The Early Days Of Vito Corleone
7 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

TV mini-series were a thing during the 1970's and the 1980's.The The Godfather: A Novel For Television are the first two Godfather films were re-edited together in chronological order with additional footage added and it was transformed into one long film. It stars Marlon Brando,Al Pacino,Robert Duvall and Robert DeNiro.

The TV mini-series tells the complete story of Don Vito Corleone and the story of Don Michael Corleone before and after his assumption of the role as the godfather. It was edited very well that it came a classic on its own.

The first episode centers on the early days of Vito Corleone,played magnificently by Robert DeNiro,in New York City.

With that being said,I consider The Godfather: A Novel For Television as the Greatest TV mini-series ever shown on television.
