The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York is portrayed while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate.
When Michael goes to see Hyman Roth at his house in Miami, the football game on the TV is USC vs. Notre Dame, a major rivalry. In 1958, the year the scene takes place, Notre Dame defeated USC 20-13.
The godfather was born Vito Andolini, in the town of Corleone in Sicily. In 1901 his father was murdered for an insult to the local Mafia chieftain. His older brother Paolo swore revenge and disappeared into the hills, leaving Vito, the only male ...
When Michael reads his prepared statement to the Senate committee he states that he received the Navy Cross for his wartime service; however, in The Godfather he wears the ribbon for the Silver Star instead.
This is the only Godfather film not to feature a standalone title screen against a black background. Instead, the title appears over Michael Corleone's chair after he gets up out of it.
