Trivia

Lee Strasberg came out of retirement to play Hyman Roth after a specific request from Al Pacino. He was unwilling at first, but agreed to do it after a forty-five-minute meeting with Francis Ford Coppola's father, Carmine Coppola.


Quotes

Title Card: 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 ...


Goofs

When Vito gets the 50 dollars from both Clemenza and Tessio, Tessio wishes him good luck. His lip movements do not match his dialogue.


Crazy Credits

As with the first film no opening credits are shown. Although it is now commonplace for films not to have opening credits, it was considered innovative in 1974.


Alternate Versions

For The Godfather Saga, besides the added scenes and toning down the violence and language, other changes were made to the original version:

  • The close-up shots of Michael's face as Rocco kisses his hand are deleted.
  • The on-screen prologue is deleted.
  • The shot of little Vito being marked with an encircled X among the benches filled with immigrants is deleted.
  • The shot of little Vito singing by himself in Ellis Island is deleted.
  • The scene of Anthony receiving his communion is deleted.
  • Throughout the story of young Vito's rise, many of the lines originally spoken in Sicilian are dubbed in English.
  • An alternate take of Vito walking down the aisle in the theatre.
  • Scenes at the communion party are rearranged. The scene with Connie and Merle meeting with Michael appears earlier and the scenes with Senator Geary appear later.
  • The scene where Vito brings a pear home and the scene where he first encounters Clemenza are switched to appear in the order originally intended. This explains why he is in a bad mood at dinner.
  • An alternate take of Vito refusing the box of food from Signor Abbandando.
  • A shot of Clemenza nodding to a customer in the café is deleted.
  • The shot of Clemenza cutting the rug and playing with baby Sonny is deleted.
  • Michael's reply of "New York City" at the Senate hearing is deleted.
