Crop And Save
godfather, a novel for television
I found this version extremely enjoyable. It ties the two movies together so smoothly and we also get to see what happens to characters whose fates were not determined in previous versions. For instance,one of Michael's body guards in Italy, who blew up his car, killing Appolonia.
When Michael goes back to the states, the Corleone's financial resources seek him out and find him and kill him.
There is also a great scene where the under taker, whom we saw in the original as just a humble, frustrated man who begs Don Corleone to kill the men who raped his daughter and got away with it, reveal himself to be just the opposite. He is a constant complainer and is horribly ungrateful. We never would have seen that in the uncut version.
To end, this edited for television version that combines parts 1 and 2 is such a joy to watch because of the superb story telling that weaves the two tales together masterfully.
