Is there another "The Godfather" that wasn't made in '72?

I will say this.
When that movie first came out I watched on the very day it premiered there were at least two scenes that for whatever reason is not shown on todays version.
The old guy that was begging Don Corelleone for justice for his daughter.
Well the Don sent some guys up and cut their nuts off.
The other part not seen was the Hollywood producer who was a pedophile and Tom saw this young girl when he was about to leave the producers mansion.
He relayed the message to the Don what kind of an asshole Waltz was and then the Don sent his guys after the producers horse.

Reading some of the replies here I come away with the same impression of the posters that once see a post that is more than three paragraphs they throw up the tl;dr routine.

The first two were great.

The first 2 have been on HBO for a few months.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 9:17:23 PM EST
I never saw the original in the theater , it would have been 6 or so years later when it was shown on network TV. They cut the crap out of it and left a pretty disjointed movie but it was still very good.

Some day I suppose I should grab a complete copy and watch from start to finish to fill in some of the gaps

I picked up a 3 DVD set (I II III) at Walmart for $12.96. Pretty good movies, showed the beginning of Vito to the end of Michael.

I saw Scarface and Goodfellas too, good movies and I got those DVDs too.

You gotta see American Gangster.

I always felt the third was a good Andy Garcia movie.
Probably just shouldn't have been in The Godfather series.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 9:20:15 PM EST
I saw the movie when it came out. It was slow and boring. The only good part ws the horse head. Never cared to see it again.

You are not a man if you haven't seen Godfather 1 and 2.

Actually. . . yes.

I believe it was ABC that purchased the rights to both Godfather 1 and 2, then edited both for presentation as a miniseries on television.

Just one of those movies that didn't hold my attention. None of the Godfather's did, neither did scar face.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 9:44:22 PM EST
Great movie, even better book. There are whole sub-plots & back stories in the book that aren't even touched on in the movie.

IIRC, That would be The Godfather Saga
-- Showed you what happened to the Sicilian body guard that killed Apollonian. Blew him up in his car outside his pizza shop in the US

Have not seen it. Probably never will.

1 and 2 are two of my favorite movies.

I love the first 2 films.. the third is an abomination that someone should suffer for, and i don't just mean the people who watched it...

there was an episode of the tv show modern family that did their own version of the christening scene in Godfather part 1, that was 1 of the funniest things i've ever seen...
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 10:29:53 PM EST
What's the matter with you? I think your brain is going soft with all that comedy you are playing with that young girl. Never tell anyone outside the Family what you are thinking again. Go on.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 10:35:46 PM EST
Don Corleone: Tell me, do you spend time with your family?

Johnny Fontane: Sure I do.

Don Corleone: Good. Because a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.

Godfather, Part II is on right now. One of the few sequels that is as good or is better than the original.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:57:21 PM EST
[Last Edit: 1/20/2015 7:58:50 PM EST by RedDane]
It was great especially when combined with the books. I really enjoyed the flashbacks to turn of the century America (10s-20s) that explained so much about the logic behind why the mafia existed and why Vito developed the way he did.

I didn't care a lot for certain aspects of the second movie (Hyman Roth and Freddies inadvertent betrayal) but some parts were directly in line with the first movie.

Recycling of leitmotifs, helicopter gunship, Vatican conspiracy, Sofia Coppola with her pouting and cousin-loving way

As a whole the Godfather series should be seen as an opera and a morality tale, rather than a true-crime story like Goodfellas.

Paulie was whacked in The Godfather.

He didn't make it to the second movie.
