The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York City is portrayed, while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate.
During the first scene in Michael's office, when he's speaking with Senator Geary, a copy of John F. Kennedy's book "Profiles in Courage" is clearly visible on the desk behind Al Pacino.
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 ...
After the attempted assassination on Michael, Tom and Rocco are overlooking the discovery of the dead bodies in the water. When Rocco turns away from Tom to ask where Michael is, his lips do not move while the soundtrack says "Where's Mike?".
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.
