If you haven't seen "The Godfather" and it's sequels, then now is the time to get the collection. It's the twenty-fifth anniversary of everyone quoting "I'm gonna make them an offer they can't refuse." Each of the cassettes also includes interviews with Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, Mario Puzo and Talia Shire. No, they didn't get Marlon Brando, but we do find out that he had all his lines on cue cards. They were held up, tacked on people's clothing and written on props! And in case you don't know about the Corleone family, "The Godfather" covers three generations of a crime family. The series propelled the careers of Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia and Talia Shire. And gave Americans a view of a world they barely knew existed. With twenty-eight Academy Award nominations and nine wins including Best Picture, (Godfather I and II), Best Actor (Marlon Brando, '72), Best Supporting Actor (Robert DeNiro, '74), Best Director (Francis Ford Coppola, '74) and Best Screenplay (Godfather I and II) this is a video event not to be missed.
