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

Shortly after the assassination attempt on Michael in his bedroom, he meets alone in a room with Tom Hagen. They sit at an empty table. After talking for a few minutes, Michael offers Tom a glass of Courvoisier, from a bottle which has randomly materialized on the table.


Crazy Credits

Closing credits state that this film is "Based on the Novel "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo." In fact, only the scenes showing the young Vito have any basis in the novel. Everything dealing with Michael Corleone and his family in Las Vegas was created for the film, with the exception of the character Deanna Dunn.


Alternate Versions

For The Godfather Saga (1977), 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.
