Really Interesting..
23 October 2018 | by BatmanFunReviews2018See all my reviews

The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1974) were re-edited together in chronological order with additional footage added. The Godfather: A Novel for Television is another terrific documentary if anyone could even call it like that since it mixes the first and second film in a chronological order and basically makes for an even better experience as a whole as well and it definitely will entertain fans of the those two movies as a whole in my opinion but it's also something hard to find and see in my opinion as well but still really really nice.
